Easy Chipotle Hot Sauce and Dip

Here's a simple way to make your own hot sauce. This chipotle sauce is hot but not super hot, smoky, and quite good. You can store a bottle in the refrigerator for a long time.

Step 1: Ingredients

Picture of Ingredients
Grab a can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. It should be in the Mexican food aisle of your grocery store. If not, find a better grocery store. Get some of your favorite vinegar. I like to use balsamic or cider vinegar, but any will work. White distilled vinegar might be a little strong, but you can water it down to your liking. The vinegar adds flavor and helps prevent the sauce from spoiling.

7 oz can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
1/2 cup of a nice vinegar more or less.

i'm addicted to your instructables :)

I knew I was saving those hot sauce bottles for a reason ! I'll have to remember this for the next time I only use a part of a can of chipolte, instead of freezing the rest I'll sauce it !

Good idea. I'll have to try your Salsa Hack, although I usually steer clear of habaneros.

like any of my guides ( I don't call them recipes) the salsa should be made according to the makers tastes. I was introduced to hot peppers at a very early age, my dads dad ate cherry peppers right from the jar and had a XXX mustard made from fresh horseradish and fresh ground mustard. Fast forward 40yrs and I've replaced the cherry peppers with pickled jalapenos. It can be difficult cooking for non-chilli heads (like my wife) what will tingle my tongue will have her reaching for the milk ( and occasionally something to throw at me) but my 8alarm chili is legendary and my 5yo grandson uses the bottled red water on his eggs and pizza ! hhmmmm I think I'm going to cnp this reply to my "ible"
That is super easy! Sounds good. :)
