The adobo butter used on our grilled skirt steak gets its spicy-savory flavor from puréed canned chipotles. You’ll end up making more purée than you need for the recipe, but it will keep for weeks in the refrigerator and for months in the freezer. Adding just a little spices up all kinds of dishes. Use it to:

• liven up scrambled eggs or an omelet

• flavor vegetables before roasting

• boost your favorite tomato or barbecue sauce

• amp up a braise, stew, chili, or soup 

• brighten up mayonnaise to use as a dip or sandwich spread

• spice up guacamole

• spike your next batch of Bloody Marys
