Chipotles are smoke-dried jalapeño peppers, with the morita variety being the most well-known (the meco/Brown Chipotle variety being the other). The morita variety of chipotle is smoked for just a few days until a leathery consistency is achieved.

When whole, their leathery exterior can be difficult to work with and rather daunting to grind into powder. We’ve taken on that task to create a brick red powder that’s smoky and bold. We like to add a sprinkle of smoked chipotle Morita powder to corn or black bean dishes. For a fresh summer snack add a dash to watermelon or papaya along with a spritz of fresh lime juice.
