"This is quite like the sauce that comes with canned chipotle peppers, which are in fact, smoked jalapenos. Basically what they do is pack the peppers in the ketchup mixture and as they sit after being canned, the ketchup absorbs the heat. The flavor is pretty much on target. I wouldn't use this as such to pack your smoked jalapenos because they dried spices approximate what the ketchup tastes like *after* peppers have been in it, so using it in that way would make your canned chipotles very much spicier. This is really good with fries and on burgers and the like or wherever you might want to use ordinary ketchup, just having it much spicier with a hint of smokiness."
