The smoky flavor of chipotle (and not the restaurant, the pepper) is one of my favorite flavors out there. That was something I sorely missed during my time living in Germany. I tried going to every international market I could over there, but to no avail…Chipotle peppers in adobo were nowhere to be found.
Every time I visited the US, I’d stock up on a few cans to bring back as well as some chipotle hot sauces. But never enough…They’d maybe last me a month or two.
Here’s one creation I made using chipotle peppers in adobo. Again, instead of the heavy cream, sour cream, or the like, this recipe uses the Greek cream cheese to add the element of creaminess, going lighter on the calories but still being delicious. Enjoy!
