Our chipotle peppers are selected from our growers' most ripe red jalapeños (Capsicum annuum) and are dried traditionally by woodsmoke. By leaving these chiles on the plant as long as possible, the end result is irresistibly sweet. The unmistakable smell of nectar-laden smokiness makes our ground chipotle a favorite amongst our team.
It gives added smoke flavor and depth of flavor profile to anything from meats, chicken, chili, stews, and marinades. Ground chipotle pepper most is most similar to paprika in its honey and earth undertones. Our chipotle has a rating of 15k Scoville heat units that will give you nice warmth on your tongue but will be nowhere close to the spiciness of our ground cayenne.
