"For those of you who can't find Adobo sauce, it is the stuff canned chipolte chiles are packed in. You will find this in the Mexican/Hispanic aisle. You can feeeze the chipolte chiles in tiny batches for later use. I like to puree the chiles in ranch dressing for dipping sauce."

"I couldn't find adobo sauce either. I used some chili garlic sauce that I already had. I am guessing that they would still be good without it."

"These are awesome! Even my kids liked them. For some reason, adobo sauce is hard to find in rural OK, so I just added a little cayenne."
