I think I’ve posted this tip before, but never you mind, it bears repeating. You know how recipes always call for one of those chipotle peppers, or for some adventuresome recipes, possibly two? You have to buy a can of them, which holds about 10 peppers. What do you do with the leftovers? Here is what I do.
I take a sheet of wax paper and cut it into squares. On each square I place one chipotle pepper and a bit of the sauce.
I then fold up the squares, tape them shut, place them in a ziploc bag and into the freezer they go. When a recipe calles for a chipotle pepper, I just pull out a package. They barely even need any defrosting, they’re ready for your recipe.
How about you, what do you do with leftover canned chipotle peppers?
