When it comes to seasonings, we love to turn to the Mexican pepper chipotle. And especially the one from a can: chipotle e adobo. One luxury problem: we always have some left over. And throwing away, that’s not what we do. With this life hack you simply slide the liquid gold into the freezer.
First a little memory refresh on that smoky, sweet and spicy chipotle . An indispensable part of Mexican cuisine and fortunately can now also be found more often in Dutch cuisine. The spicy jalapeño pepper is smoked giving it a deep smoky, sweet and still spicy taste. The rich seasoning can therefore be found in all kinds of forms.
Chipotle and adobo
You will regularly find this smoky Mexican pepper in our favorite recipes. Often in the form of chipotle e adobo: where the peppers are canned in the form of a puree with tomatoes, vinegar, garlic and spices. Try it in a black bean soup , these aubergines with chipotle sauce , tacos with pulled jackfruit or as a surprising seasoning in butter .
Back to that life hack : because you often don’t need more than a tablespoon and such a can is really too spicy to empty afterwards, we prefer to save it for next time. Let’s face it: always having some chipotle e adobo on hand is really a reassuring thought in culinary emergencies.
We came across it on Instagram at Minimalist Baker and the hack is simpler than you might think. Everything you need? An ice cube tray, a fork or spoon and of course your open can of chipotle e adobo. Scoop or pour what’s left straight into the molds – nicely dosed so for next time – slide it into the freezer and voilà: ready for the next session.
