Chipotles are smoke-dried ripe red jalapeño peppers, with the Morita variety being the most well-known (the brown or meco chipotle variety being the other). Allowing the jalapeños to fully ripen gives chipotle chile peppers an inherent fruity-sweet flavor, since the chile has more time to create and store sugar.
