Chile Chipotle

Chile Chipotle is a medium-hot, smoke-dried jalapeño chilli.

Small, thick-fleshed chipotle chillies are one of the most popular and well-known Mexican chillies, with a unique smokiness and depth of flavour that works particularly well with anything slow-cooked.

  • Serving Suggestion

    Blend soaked chipotle chillies with garlic, oil, sugar and salt to taste then gently fry to make a smoky-sweet salsa negra.

  • Preparation

    Lightly toast then rehydrate chipotle chillies to release their flavour. First, wipe clean and remove their stems and seeds. Toast briefly in a dry pan on a medium heat until fragrant then soak in just boiled water for 15 minutes. Drain and blend to a paste with a splash of water before using. Always wash your hands after handling chillies!

    Keep in a cool dry place for storage.
