Chipotle Chillies - Meco - Whole Dried (50g) Our quality chile peppers have a warm chocolate and tobacco aroma which is perfect to add a smoky flavour to your dishes.  Also known as Chipotle Chiles or Chiles Chipotles (Spanish) or chilpotle. These chipotle pods are a higher quality than you normally find on the market and have been brought directly from Mexico for your enjoyment. The word chipotle comes from a  Nahuatl word chilpoctli meaning "smoked chili". The chile is created by smoke drying a Jalapeno pepper and is a highly utilized ingredient in Mexican and Tex Mex cooking. No self respecting ingredient cupboard would be missing a bag of chipotle chile. There are two main types of Chipotle chillies in circulation. The Morita is more usually found in North American cuisine and the Meco (The version here) is more typically used in Mexican food. Chipotles are purchased in forms, including chipotle powder, chipotle pods, chipotles en adobo in a can, concentrated chipotle base and wet chipotle meat marinade. As previously mentioned these dried chillies are a staple to Mexican cooking and give a subtle earthy spicy flavour to dishes and salsas. You can grind the pepper up and combine it with other spices to make adobo salsa.
