How long do canned chiles last?

  • c

I have some canned chipotles in adobo -- how long will they stay edible if I keep them in a covered container in the refrigerator?

    I've kept chipotles in adobo in a tightly covered jar in my fridge for months and months without any signs of going bad (smell fine, taste fine). I keep using them, but it's a big jar.

      As long as you transfer them from the can to a clean, tightly-closable container, and don't contaminate them with any extraneous material, they will keep for a long, long, loooooooooooong time.
