I am a little obsessed with canned chipotle chiles—which are smoked jalapeños in a vinegary adobo sauce. Traditional Mexican chorizo has a lot of smoked paprika, which gives it its deep red color. I prefer using the chipotle, which adds the same color and smokiness but a good kick of heat too that, in my opinion, store-bought chorizo is lacking.
