Chipotles Adobados

Here’s a pickled chile recipe. These sweet-hot pickled chiles can be the basis of a sauce of their own if they’re further puréed, or they can be served as a condiment with enchiladas and other main dishes.



1. Soak the chipotles in water until they rehydrate, at least an hour, then drain.
2. In a saucepan, combine half the vinegar, half the garlic, and the brown sugar. Cook this mixture over low heat for about 20 minutes, then add the chipotles.
3. In another pan, combine the green chile, tomato, remaining garlic, peppercorns, bay leaves, cumin, remaining vinegar, and salt to taste. Cook over medium heat for about 30 minutes, covered. Add the chipotle chile mixture, stir well, and store in sterilized jars.
