Each pack has approximately 10 premium Chipotle chilli pods. Chipotle is Mesquite-smoked red Jalapeno.
Jalapeno is normally picked green in the chile fields of Mexico; however, as the season progresses the pods will start changing to red. The red pods are slow-smoked using locally available wood. This is primarily a small scrub tree found in central and northern Mexico and Texas called "Mesquite".
Authentic chipotle is smoked with mesquite wood until it dehydrates like a prune or raisin. The smoke lingers with the flavour and heat of the Jalapeno and creates a unique ingredient which can be used to enhance salsa's, sauces, soups, stews, chilli con carne or combined with other spices and sauce to make traditional adobo.
Here at Edible Ornamentals we grow the Jalapeno's onsite and produce the chipotle in the traditional way using our own bespoke commercial smoker and mesquite wood.
