Bring smoky heat to your favorite meals…

Adding a little smoky spiciness to any meal is simple with this tasty chipotle paste recipe. Based on chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, it adds in earthy and even lemony undertones with the additions of coriander and thyme. It’s very versatile – use chipotle paste as a marinade for steak, chicken, and pork, or add it into a vinaigrette to add some heat to a salad. Try adding it into a tomato sauce to liven up your pasta, or add some to your eggs to spice up your breakfast.
