Dried chipotle chili peppers are actually the smoked and dried version of the jalapeño pepper. Where jalapeños are picked green and unripe, chipotles are allowed to remain on the vine until they have ripened to a bright red. They are then picked and dried slowly over wood smoke for several days. This gives the dried chipotle peppers the sweet, smoky, spicy complexity that they are know and adored for.
These chipotle peppers are grown and dried in Mexico, where they are frequently used in Mexican dishes like mole sauce, adobo sauce, salsa, barbecue sauce, and some stews. Chipotle peppers are a delicious addition to spicy sweet dishes like Mexican chocolate, chocolate ice cream, and others. Use chipotle anywhere you want to add a smoky spicy kick.
Use dried chipotles whole, ground, or rehydrated. To rehydrate, soak in hot water for at least twenty minutes. Store whole smoked jalepenos in a cool dark place.
