    1      Can           chipotle -- (7 oz)
                         chilies en adobo
    2      tb            Corn oil
    3      lg            Garlic cloves
    2      ts            Ground coriander

  tightly covered, for up to 3 weeks.
   Building Block: By blending canned chipotle chilies in adobo with a few
  additional ingredients, you have a nearly effortless recipe for a
  versatile, spicy seasoning paste.
   Uses: Brush tha paste on beef and pork roasts, baby back ribs, chicken or
  shellfish. Mix with sour cream or mayonnzise to accompany grilled meat,
  poached chicken or baked potatoes. Add to a vinagrette from raw or steamed
  vegetables. Stir into chicken stock along with shredded cooked chicken,
  chickpeas and avocado cubes to make a zingy soup or into shrimp or lobster
  stock with assorted seafood. Mix into a simple tomato sauce to go with
  pasta, meatballs, saut‚ed shrimp or squid, or use as the base for a stew.
