Meco 10lb Whole Pods
Chipotle Meco is a rare, smoked jalapeño with a distinct brown (meco/café) color available to you through The Chile Guy. Rated at level 5 on the Scoville Chile Heat Scale (approximately 2,500-5,000 units), chipotle meco is ideal to moderately spice up salsas, sauces, and soups. When cooked, this chile emits a strong, smoky aroma, and there is simply no substitute for it in classic Mexican dishes. At The Chile Guy, we provide only 100% pure, natural chile with the best flavor, heat, and color available. Whether you need 1 pound or 50,000 pounds, The Chile Guy has the finest quality, bulk chile you need.
The Morita Jalapeno (i.e., little blackberry in Spanish) is smaller than the Meco and is about the size of your thumb. It turns purple when smoked and imparts a tobacco, chocolate flavor that is popular in Southwestern and Mexican dishes. These two types of Jalapeno are smoked using different types of wood, infusing them each with their own distinctive flavor. Ranking a 5 on The Chile Guys 0-10 heat scale, the Chipotle is a medium chile in terms of heat.
