chipotle paste

Haven't a clue what galangal is, or need to know what to use if you can't buy creme fraiche locally? We're sure our knowledgeable members will be able to point you in the right direction...

chipotle paste

I would like to try a new recipe I have for smoky Mexican meatball stew, but it calls for chipotle paste. I haven't heard of this and wondered if anyone knew if I could use anything else instead.
I have googled it but haven't come up with a substitute, lots of recipes seem to use it though.
Any thoughts? Thanks.

I suppose you could just get some chipotle chilies and grind them in a processor (or a spice grinder, or even mortar and pestle) and then blend with a little oil? It would be hard to get that smoky chipotle taste without using the actual chilies - I think Spice Pioneers (who do the Delia 'cheat' spice blends) have crushed chipotles for sale online (www.spicepioneers.com, I think)- pretty sure I have some of theirs in the kitchen. There's also a chipotle version of Tabasco - which Waitrose stock, and that would at least add the smokiness and heat, if not the texture of a paste. Hope that helps!

Chipotle peppers..

I got some dried ones (quite a while ago) from my local Tesco (and I'm out in the sticks!) I haven't seen them in there since and I notice that the black garlic they were selling doesn't seem to be there any more either. So frustrating but I guess if they don't sell, I can't blame them for not keeping them in stock so on line would seem to be your best bet.

Oh, just had a thought Tubs...

Can't remember it's name off hand but there is a place in, I think, Covent Garden, that sells American and Australian foodstuffs - will have a hunt for the web address because I think I saved it (that may be famous last words though) but they do mail order. Anyone else have a clue in case I can't find it?

Should look before I leap in..

The shop I was thinking of Tubs supplies Canadian and Australian goodies. Sorry to steer you in the wrong direction (smacking my own hand) BUT I'm sure I've seen American foods advertised somewhere for purchase in the UK - will check it further BEFORE I say "it's available" this time.

Thanks DG and Liz. Am going to Waitrose tomorrow so will look there for the Tabasco chipotle or dried chipotle chillies. Failing that will look on t'internet for suppliers of American foodstuffs.
Again thanks for your help. Will report back if I have any success.

I know that Discovery foods do a chipotle paste and it is sold in some Waitrose' and Asda do one by Mission (as in wraps. I think you may be able to buy the Discovery make online from their own website which is discoveryfoodsonline.com x

Today bought a bottle of Tabasco Chipotle sauce, not quite the paste but might suffice.

Well, if it doesn't work in your recipe, it makes a nice smokey tasting Bloody Mary :)

I bought some of this in Sainsburys on Monday, found it in the specialist food aisle. Made by a firm called Trees Can't Dance!

Chipotle Paste

I watched Thomasina at the weekend "Mexican Food made easy) and she said if you can't get hold of the Chipotle (she used a jar of whole smoked chilli and ground them) use red chilli and Smoked Paprika together.
Good tip if you can't get hold of the real thing.

Chipotle paste

I've never heard of chipotle paste, but what we use in the States a lot is Chipotles in Adobo. Its whole pepers in a thick smoky sweet paste. Very lovely. You can freeze what you don't use for later. If you can find it!
Goes well with butternut squash and I would recommend making Chicken or pork Tinga if you manage to get a hold of some.

If you like all things Mexican take a look at Casa Mexico. If you google it the website will come up. It has some lovely stuff including really nice earthenware as well as food.x
