Organic Chili Chipotle Ground
Our Organic Chili Chipotle Ground spice is made up of beautifully smoke-dried jalapeños that have been ground into a fine powder. Chili chipotle is generally used in Mexican, Tex-Mex, and Southern US cooking and packs as much heat as a fresh jalapeño would, with the added smoky flavor from the drying process.
Using at Home
Our chili chipotle gives wonderful smoky heat to dishes.
It is fantastic in salsas, chili con carne, BBQ, and hot sauces, and adds flavor to bean and lentil dishes.
The ground powder is perfect to add spice to taco meat, queso, and soups.
Chili chipotles are packed full of vitamins and minerals, including capsaicin, iron, magnesium, vitamins A, B6, C, and K.
Chili chipotles also show promise in keeping hearts healthy and are believed to help the body dissolve fibrin, a clotting agent, to help prevent heart attack and stroke.
The active component capsaicin has been credited for widening and relaxing blood vessels, improving blood flow as well as helping to manage insulin spikes in diabetics.
It has also been shown to aid in weight loss by prompting the body to use fat as energy instead of storing it.Benefits
Our ground chili chipotle does not have the thick and tough flesh problem of whole peppers which compromise the moisture and textural content of the dish.
Being ground makes it possible for the pepper to be used in a wider variety of dishes.History
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.
