I am not a fan of very hot, spicy stuff, so I rarely buy those chilies in adobo sauce. But what to do when you need a little bit of that sauce? While this is not by any means an exact substitute, it will fill the gap when the 'real deal' isn't crucial! PS I always have a tube of tomato sauce on hand for occasions such as this!
