What is a Chipotle?
By breaking down the meaning of the word, we will know the definition. Chipotle is a compound word made of two Aztec words. The first is; chīlli 'chile' which means,‘hot pepper’, and the second is pōctli which means, ‘smoke’. In short, Chipotle means smoked pepper.
A Chipotle is a ripe jalapeño pepper which is dried and then smoked. But when one thinks of a jalapeño, one imagines a vibrant grassy green. Jalapeños are like berries and yes, peppers are fruits because it has seeds. Jalapeños change color as they mature as do grapes. Jalapeños are green when picked early before it ripens on the vine and then they turn red the longer it’s left on the vine. Leaving them on the vine longer also allows them to be sweeter and work better for smoking.
A chipotle can come in many forms from powder to flakes and from marinades to canned in adobo sauce.
