Chipotle chilli pepper is also called Jalapeno chilli and is grown in Mexico in the State of Chihuahua. Its name comes from the Nahuatl (a macro language from the Uto-Aztecan family) word “Chilpoctli”, “Chil” means chilli pepper and “poctli” means smoked.

Once dried and smoked with Pecan wood, this strong and very hot little brown chilli pepper will flavour your olive oils (when left to soak in the oil), your sauces, vinegar, home-made Tabasco or a simple dish of beans and lentils.

Its sweet flavours of walnut and smokey notes go wonderfully with grilled red meat, delicate white fish, poultry in sauce or a chocolate dessert. When ground down to a powder, it goes great with nachos, tacos, burritos, home-made guacamole or in a Tex-Mex spice mix.

This Mexican chilli pepper rates 5/10 (strong) on the Scoville scale. It is stronger than Espelette chilli pepper and not as hot as Bird’s chilli pepper. Be careful not to rub your eyes once you have handled the chilli as the alkaloid in it might burn you.
