If making sauce up to 3 days ahead, cover and chill. Look for canned chipotle chilies in Mexican markets and well-stocked supermarkets.


How to Make It

Step 1

In a 3- to 4-quart pan over medium-high heat, frequently stir oil, onion, and garlic until onion is lightly browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Add oregano, cumin, and allspice and stir until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Remove from heat.

Step 2

Meanwhile, in a blender, purée chipotles (for less heat, remove seeds), small can (10 oz.) chili sauce, and tomato paste until smooth. Add to onion mixture.

Step 3

Add remaining can (28 oz.) chili sauce to onion-chipotle mixture and stir to blend well. Season to taste with salt.
