    1                    Block of Tamarind paste
                         -about 14 ounces
    2       c            Water
      1/2   c            Dark Brown Sugar
    2                    Cloves of Garlic
    2                    Chipotle chiles in adobo
                         Juice of one lime
                         -Option
    2       ts           Minced mint leaves
 
   Add the Tamarind paste to the water and heat gently, stirring until smooth.
   Place in a blender and puree together with the sugar, garlic, chipotles,
   and
   adobe / (adobo) sauce. Then add the lime juice and blend in. Serve slightly
   warmed.
   This sauce goes very well with any pork dish, especially barbecued pork, or
   with seafood such as shrimp and soft-shelled crab, especially when combined
   with a little mint.
