Chipotle peppers are actually Jalapeno peppers which are allowed to ripen and dry on the vine and then smoked to infuse them with the aroma of blazing mesquite-fired braziers. Incorporated into Southwestern and Mexican sauces and soups, the Chipotle lends a unique, smoky aroma and flavor to any dish.
Chipotle peppers are currently America’s favorite Southwestern cuisine flavor profile and are utilized in many top restaurants in sauces, stews, and brews. This little wrinkled reddish-brown Mexican chile packs quite a punch: ranking 2,500 – 5,000 on the Scoville Heat Chart (or 5 on The Chile Guy’s 0-10 heat scale), the Chipotle provides a kick of heat without searing your taste buds.
Our Chipotle comes straight from Mexico where The Chile Guy personally peruses the markets in Vera Cruz and Guadalajara to negotiate for the best quality dried Jalapenos. The best Chipotle pepper comes from Jalapa—the capital of Vera Cruz—where Jalapenos first originated. In fact, Jalapenos were named after Jalapa (also known as Xalapa).
