*What is the difference between chipotle and adobo?
A pretty common ingredient that adds a smoky, pleasant heat, chipotle peppers in adobo are a versatile pantry staple for adding a bit of Mexican flavor to whatever you're cooking. Chipotle peppers are dried and smoked jalpeños—a fairly mild pepper on its own. Adobo is a red sauce that's generally made from paprika, oregano, salt, vinegar, and garlic; it has an unmistakable zesty and tangy flavor. The addition of the chipotle peppers gives it a smoky and spicy kick that the sauce itself doesn't have.
