chipotle powder

Many recipes often call for chipotle chilis in adobo sauce. I usually use chipotle powder instead. It offers similar flavors with less effort. There is also less waste, since opening a can of chilis means you will have extras to save for later. A ½ teaspoon of chipotle powder is about equivalent to ½ of a chipotle chili. You can also sub chili powder, but chipotle adds a nice smokiness, so it is worth having some chipotle powder on hand.
