Original: Tomato and Corn Chipotle Salsa

For a long time, whenever a recipe called for "chipotles in adobo sauce," we blatantly ignored the directions and just used chipotle hot sauce.  Apparently we were making a grave mistake and our taste-buds may never forgive us.  Last weekend, we were at this lovely kitchen store and we finally found chipotles in adobo sauce.  Now, I am finding every excuse I can to use them. So far, the chipotles have made two dishes even better than we expected.  When we bought them, the cashier told us to dice some up and put them in scrambled eggs.  He also told us we could find them at the regular grocery store down the street! So, you can expect to see a few more recipes with these bad boys - I'm dying to make the delicious Slow Cooker Pork Tacos again with the real thing.

For our burritos the other night, I made a fantastic salsa with the chipotles.  It was so delicious that I was eating it by itself with a spoon - this salsa is spicy, but extremely tasty.
