Chipotle Sauce

Chipotle is a smoked dried jalapeno.  The Teotihuacan civilization (pre-dates the Aztec civilization) around Mexico City created Chipotle.  You get a smoky and somewhat sweet taste from these chiles.  These chiles are hot and have a strong flavor, so you want to be careful that you do not overpower your recipe.
