This is a recipe from Derryck Strachan who used to run a course about cooking with Chillies. We used to sell Chipotles in Adobo in tins via mail orders, and you can still do with from either Hot-Headz or Scoricho, but they are very simple to make.

Ingredients :

  • Dried chipotles – 6
  • Large onion chopped
  • 6 cloves garlic
  • 6 tbsp cider vinegar
  • 6 tbsp tomato ketchup
  • 2 tbsp dark brown sugar
  • large pinch of salt
  • 450 ml water
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • allspice, cinnamon, cumin – to taste
  • 3 – 4 tbsp lime juice

Put the chipotles in pan with half the onion, 5 cloves garlic, vinegar, ketchup, sugar, salt, water, oil and spices.

Bring to the boil then simmer over a low heat for about 20 minutes or until chillies are soft and the mixture thickened

Remove the chilli mixture from the heat add the rest of the onion and the garlic, stir in the lime juice and season with spices and salt. Keeps for a week or so in the fridge.

You can buy Chipotle Chillies from a number of UK suppliers including: Hot-Headz and Chilli Pepper Pete
