How well I know what you are dealing with! Have to substitute things all the time. I'd just use some dried red peppers or even red pepper flakes if you have them. Chipotles are smoked jalapenos, so if you have some liquid smoke or smoked salt, a tiny bit of that would help capture the flavor. But it doesn't have to be exact - it will still be good.
