A chipotle pepper is a red Jalapeño chile, ripened, dried, and smoked through a special process. A unique warm heat and smoky flavor, chipotles are packed in a red adobo sauce made from lightly seasoned tomato broth. Medium-thick fleshed, with a subtle deep rounded heat, they are excellent in sauces, soups, and as a seasoning for meats and stews.
Try roughly chopping the chipotles and use as a burger topping, or use them to add a smoky twist to a homemade soups and sauces.
Mix a little of chipotle peppers with cheese cream to have a spicy fully flavoured dip for crisps or veggies or mix with mayo for a delicious sauce for seafood and fish.
