Feel free to use just tomato sauce or ketchup instead of adobo sauce.

The adobo Sauce I used was from the these Mexican Chipotle Peppers . We did not use the peppers, just the sauce. It’s the only sauce I found that was gluten free and without preservatives. It does use canola oil though, just FYI.

We used Udis Gluten Free Buns.
