I toss them in the blender with greek yogurt, making an awesome dip for veggies or pita chips.

I feel like I have been seeing a ton of recipes with these peppers in it. I saw a soup that also called for them...I want to say it was a Rachel Ray or a Martha Stewart recipe for a chipotle soup. They are also called for in these Mexican stuffed sweet potatoes that I love. Try Googling them.

I'm pretty obsessed with these, although I'm in the midst of withdrawals--haven't had access to any since the end of April.

I LOVE to slice one up and mix it with a little bit of garlic powder in black beans.

I put them in everything: meatballs, soups, chili and chicken tinga.

I freeze them as well. I put 2 peppers plus some sauce in baggies and do it that way. Most recipes don't call for more than 2, so that way I'm not thawing and then re-freezing the whole can over and over again. I do the same thing w/ tomato paste.

The last time I opened a can, I froze what I didn't use. Just a thought.

You can blend it with reduced fat may, and make a chipotle mayonnaise. It's great on a turkey burger.

I like adding one to chili. Gives it a nice, smoky heat. I've also made a rice dish with it, and added a can of black beans.

You can use them in place of any fresh jalapeno or chile powder. They will ad more of a smoky flavor as well as heat. They also will keep a long time in the fridge, so you can use a little bit at a time.

Chop them up and, with the adobo, add to an omelet with vegetables and a smoked cheese or an aged cheese.

Toss into pasta with vegetables.

Smear onto bread for sandwiches.

Toss into the pot when you're cooking rice to flavor it.

Make tortilla soup or another Mexican recipe and add to taste.

Buena suerte!

Check out this recipe. I made it several months ago and was really impressed. I think the polenta I bought was a bit different because I ended up using a lot more chicken broth/hot water. However, that made a nominal change in calories. I suggest making the adobo sauce the day before you make the peppers. It is very filling.

I bought a small can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce for a spark recipe (Chef Meg's Spicy Sliders - http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-deta
il.asp?recipe=1843551). The recipe only used a small portion of the can. Does anyone have suggestions for what I can do with the remainder of the peppers?
