  • If using dried chipotle peppers, rehydrate them by soaking in hot water for 15 minutes. If using canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, skip this step.
  • In a blender or food processor, combine the rehydrated chipotle peppers (or canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce) and garlic cloves. Blend until you get a smooth paste.
  • In a saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chipotle-garlic paste and cook for 2-3 minutes to release the flavors.
  • Stir in the tomato paste, white vinegar, sugar, salt, ground cumin, and dried oregano. Cook for another 2 minutes.
  • Add the water to the saucepan, and let the mixture simmer for about 10 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld and the sauce to thicken slightly.
  • Remove the sauce from the heat and let it cool to room temperature.
  • Once cooled, transfer the sauce to a clean, airtight container and store it in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
