Chipotle Chilli Dried Whole 50g 

Did you know that when you smoke dry a  jalapeno chili you get the Chipotle Chilli? The classic flavour from chipotles bring the mild and earthy spiciness to many dishes in Mexican cuisine. Chipotle chiles are used to make various salsas and sauces, steep them in liquid to make a smoky marinade. Mix them with cream cheese to make a great dip. Chipotle chiles can also be ground up and combined with other spices to make a meat marinade known as an adobo.

The word chipotle, which was also sometimes spelled chilpoctle and chilpotle, comes to English originally from the Nahuatl word chilpoctli by way of Mexican Spanish. The Nahuatl word chilpoctli means "smoked chile", formed from chil (="chile pepper") + poctli (="smoke"). It is commonly misspelled and mispronounced as chipolte, an error of metathesis.
The most common pronunciation is chee-POHT-lay, although some of those who are aware of this word's Nahuatl roots prefer the more historical pronunciation chee-POHT-l.
