Chipotle Morita Chiles are red, ripe jalapeño peppers that have been smoked and dried. The Morita variety of Chipotle is smoked for just a few days until a leathery consistency is achieved. The chilies are then lightly toasted over an open flame or a flat grill top. They have a unique medium-hot, smoky flavor which works well in many dishes. These Tex-Mex favorites can be reconstituted in water, and added to dishes to add a medium-level of heat and that desired smokey flavor inherent with Tex-Mex barbeque.
Chipotle Morita Chiles can be used whole, chopped, sliced, turned into flakes, or ground into powder
