#9677: I have a question regarding chipotle in adobo. I live in a region with a scarce supply

of Mexican-type foods so I don't know if this exists.

I love the adobo sauce that chipotles are packed in. I realize that it's the smoke that contributes to the flavour that I love. I buy cans of chi in adobo and usually throw out all but 2 of the chilis. But I cn never get enough of the sauce and have started putting it in lots of different foods, especially winter the albondiga that I made with the pork stewing water from Michael's recipe.

But can I buy just the sauce? Does the sauce get its smokey flavour only from the chilis that it surrounds or ...what?

The chilis are too hot for me. I could take 1/4 tsp. in a bowl of soup and that's it for me.

Maybe I just need to get back to Phoenix again.
