I smoke my own when given the opportunity (grow 'em if I 
'em at a good price if I must) and use 'em for BBQ sauces and dry 
rubs, red chile sauce (as in for enchiladas, tamales, etc.) and 
most anything I can think of that takes advantage of the nice 
smokey flavor and chile heat.  I also like creamy "ranch style" 
salad dressings (as opposed to the oil and vinegar my wife prefers) 
and find a 50/50 mix of yogurt and mayo blended with some pureed 
chipotles en adobo sauce makes a nice tangy salad dressing.  Wife 
doesn't like it as much...but to each hiz/er own I say.
