About Chili Pepper, Chipotle Morita Powder
Chipotle Chile (Capsicum annuum) powder is made from grinding whole Chipotles, seeds and pod both. This Chipotle Morita Powder is 100 pure to provide an authentic flavor. Chipotle Peppers are the familiar, fully ripened Jalapeno Chile, first smoked, then dried. They have a deep brick reddish brown color. The word "Chipotle" translates to "Smoked Chili".
Consider the Chipotle a 6.5 on a scale of 1-10 (10 being the hottest). Approximate Scoville heat units 5,000-10,000.
Use Chipotles in enchilada sauces, chili, stews, barbecue rubs, and corn bread. Their smoky quality combines well with poultry, meats and fall squash.
Chile powders require no preparation. Add directly to recipes when a boost of flavor and heat are desired.
Often also spelled Chilli, Chille.
