Chipotle-Sauced Crab Cakes

The smoky flavor of chipotle chile peppers gives the stir-together sauce gusto that complements the subtly seasoned crab cakes. To tame the spiciness of the sauce, remove the seeds from the pepper before you add it.

Tip
  • Test Kitchen Tip: Because chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the peppers, wash your hands and nails well with soap and warm water.
