The warm, smoky flavor of chipotle powder is deliciously addictive. The spice is used to liven up salsas, marinades, Tex-Mex-style soups and chili. Chipotle powder also makes an excellent rub for grilled or roasted chicken, pork ribs or even a beef brisket. It's also a great "surprise" seasoning for vegetables and egg dishes.

what else you should know

powdered chipotle pepper

In contrast to other red pepper powders that are used in multiple world cuisines, chipotle is mostly found in Mexican cuisine, most notably in adobo marinades and sauces. The spice is also added to hot chocolate drinks. Not surprisingly, the majority of chipotle is produced in Chihuahua. For every pound of chipotle produced, 10 pounds of jalapeños must be harvested.

Chipotle is also a staple in Tex-Mex cuisine, where it appears in barbeque sauces and rubs. Like most of the chipotle produced for export in Mexico, the chipotle chili peppers grown in the U.S. are a purple variety known as moritas. Because of their color, they have earned their name from the Spanish word morita, which means “little mulberry.”
