Canned chipotle pepper can be found in most grocery stores. It is dried, smoked jalapeño pepper, and the adobo sauce is a tangy red sauce. You can use just the chiles for intense smoky chile heat, or just the sauce if you want a sour-sweet flavor and slightly less fiery smoky heat.  I freeze leftovers and use in dips, pasta, marinades, soups, etc.
