Chili Chipotle History
What is chili chipotle pepper? Most chili chipotles are produced in Chihuahua, a northern Mexican state where they go by the name morita.
The Aztecs used to smoke-dry jalapeños to preserve them, along with many other types of foods, so that they could be stored without spoiling.
Smoke-drying prevented the jalapeños from rotting before they had a chance to dry in the sun and also added flavor to the peppers.
