Brown, wrinkled, and looking like a discarded cigar, the brown (aka: meco) chipotle isn’t one that’ll win any beauty contests. Looking like old tobacco and smelling like it with a mix of smoke, black powder, and aged leather this pepper is one for those who want powerful flavor from their chiles. Our ground chipotle chili powder is made with peppers that have been dried and smoked for days longer than their younger siblings, the morita chipotles.

Brown chipotles can be used anywhere you use a morita chipotle, this one just offers a huskier flavor with a lot more smoke. Outside of its usual culinary rigmaroles, this ground chipotle chili powder should be mixed with salt, cumin powder, and ground coffee to make what may well be the most amazing rub for pork ribs ever.
