Adobo sauce is a sauce or marinade used in Latin American- and Southwest U.S.-style cooking. Recipes vary widely by region: Puerto Rican adobo, a rub used principally on meats, differs greatly from the Mexican variety. Food that has been prepared with adobo is sometimes called adobado.
Chipotles in adobo sauce is a particular use of this condiment in which chipotles (smoked jalapeño peppers) are stewed in adobo sauce. Ingredients of this sauce generally include tomatoes, garlic, vinegar, salt, and spices. We have an adobo sauce recipe and a dry adobo rub, both suitable for meat or poultry.
