Chipotle Chile (Capsicum Annuum) Granules are cut pieces of a whole Chipotle Pepper. Chipotle chiles are smoked, and then dried. Their are many different beliefs regarding the difference between brown and morita chipotles. One understanding is that the brown chipotles are the green jalapenos and the moritas are the red, fully mature chipotles. Fully ripening gives these morita chilies a unique, medium hot, smoky flavor which is popular in many southwestern dishes. These peppers are about 2-4 inches in length, 1 inch in width, and have a deep 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). Suggested Use: Use Chipotles in enchilada sauces, chili, stews, barbecue rubs, and corn bread. Their smoky quality combines well with poultry, meats and fall squash.
