How to Store Leftover Chipotles in Adobo Sauce
I have quite a few recipes that require chipotle peppers and adobo sauce, but I do not have a single recipe that uses the entire can. Most of the recipes I have call for 1-2 chipotles and/or a teaspoon or more of adobo sauce. That leaves me with extra peppers and sauce. To make sure the leftover peppers and sauce don't go bad before the next time I need them, I freeze them separately.
For the peppers, I remove any excess sauce and lay them on a parchment lined baking sheet and freeze.
For the sauce, I place a teaspoon in each well of a small ice cube tray (I found this one at The Container Store) and freeze.
