Gluten Free Brie Quesadillas with Mango Salsa and Chipotle Sour Cream

Gluten Free Brie Quesadillas with Mango Salsa and Chipotle Sour Cream Recipe

I thought I would fill you in on another of my gluten-free pantry staples. I wish I could take credit for this simple flavor-packed puree but in truth I stole got the idea from the book Seriously Simple by Diane Rossen Worthington years ago and it has since become a signature of mine in countless dishes.

Chipotle puree is a fabulous way to add smoky heat to sauces, stews, soups, and dressings. And nothing could be simpler. A can of gluten-free chipotle in adobo sauce whirled in the blender for a minute and voila! Chipotle puree.

Chipotle in adobo sauce is sold in cans in Latin markets or in the ethnic section of the grocery store. They are smoked jalapeño peppers stewed in a sauce of tomatoes, garlic, vinegar and spices. Be careful to read the ingredients on the can as not all chipotle in adobo are gluten-free. I have found San Marco and La Costena brands to be safe.

This is a favorite flavor enhancer of mine when I am in the mood for a little kick. It also adds great depth of flavor and that little bit of something that people can’t quite figure out what it is. And it makes good sense to make a puree out the chipotle in adobo, as there are not many recipes that call for a whole can and usually you have to chop or puree the peppers anyway.

    Great idea! I use a lot of chipotle too. I usually individually ziploc the peppers in a bit of sauce and freeze them, but I love this idea, since you puree them for every recipe pretty much anyway!

    I puree a whole can and then freeze it in an ice cube tray (that I keep just for spicy stuff). then you can pop out the ice cubes and keep in a baggie in the freezer until needed.
