Originating in Chihuahua, Chipotle Chilli Powder is a Mexican favourite, made from the Morita variety of Jalapeno Peppers that have been smoked whole over a wood fire for days then ground. It's believed the Aztecs used this smoking process to preserve the thick-fleshed jalapenos as they tended to rot before drying. Chipotle Chilli Powder provides a delicious, smokey yet moderate heat to both red & white protein. Use it to add incredible depth to chilli con carne, stews, sauces, & casseroles. Or add some boldness to soups & salsa. If you're feeling daring, add it to a hot chocolate for a winter warmer with a smokey, sweet kick.
