Chiles & Paprikas

Chipotles are fully ripened jalapenos, meaning they’ve been allowed to mature and turn red on the vine. They are dried by smoking and it takes about 10 pounds of fresh peppers to make one pound of dried. Chipotles are native to Mexico.

As much as one-fifth of the Mexican jalapeno crop is processed as chipotles.

Ground from the black and red chipotles, this has a rich, smoky flavor with a nice bit of heat. Ground chipotles register about 6 on heat scale of 1 to 10. Great with chicken, pork and beef, use it in place of cayenne for a nice change of pace. As with cayenne, we suggest you work with it dash to dash; in other words, add a dash and taste, and repeat until you build to the heat level you desire.
