About the Chipotle Peppers

Chipotle Morita peppers are not a variety of pepper, but they are rather a jalapeno that has been smoked and dried to give it a unique flavor.  The jalapeno ranks between 2500 and 10000 on the Scoville Heat Units, but they lose some of that heat during the smoking process. The chipotle is popular due to the smoky, earthy flavor it can add to dishes.

History of the Chipotle

The Jalapeno is a very common pepper across the US and Mexico. Until recent years, they were solely grown, dried, and smoked in Mexico. However, over the last few years, Jalapeno pepper has gained a lot of popularity in the United States. Its popularity has also begun to spread to many other regions of the world recently.

How the Chipotle is Used

Chipotle peppers can have a wide variety of uses and are available in different forms. Many different stores have begun to carry chipotle pepper products. These include pods, powders, concentrated bases, canned chipotle peppers, and wet marinades. Mexican cuisine uses chipotle peppers in different dishes like salsas that are slow-cooked. The flesh of a chipotle pepper requires slow cooking in order to let the flavor seep into the dish.
