Country of Origin:
Our organic chipotle powder is made from red jalapeño peppers that have been dried and smoked so they’re not only spicy, they have a deep, rich and smoky flavor. The dried chipotles peppers are ground into a powder and you have a butt-kicking spice, that is smoky, earthy, and adds a spicy flavor to almost any dish.
Chipotle powder's smoky character makes it perfect for enhancing meats cooked over an open flame. Its smokiness can enhance meats you plan to grill or barbecue, adding an extra dimension to the flavor. It can do a good job of making meats cooked on a stovetop or in an oven taste like they spent some time in a smoker. Chipotle powder is a great addition to most pork cuts, including ribs and pork butts. It also makes a great addition to meatloaf.
They are one of the spices used to give vegetables a meaty or "grilled" taste. It also adds a lot of depth and color to the finished dish. More than just for Mexican or Latin American dishes, it's sprinkled on cooked or raw dishes. Because of chipotle powder's complex notes, it's also a perfect addition to desserts.
Chipotles are a great example of how an ingredient can be good, but also completely different, when fresh or dried. Most people do not realize that a chipotle is just a dried and smoked jalapeño pepper. Traditionally when making chipotles, jalapeños are left on the plant as long as possible, until they are deep red and beginning to dry out. They are then harvested at the end of the growing season, in the early fall. The traditional method since pre-Aztec Mexico, has been to place them inside a smoking chamber heated by a firebox and smoked for several days. Once dry, chipotles become wrinkled and obtain a dull, deep brown color.
