The Chipotle Chili Pepper
by Thomas Kelly on Mar 02, 2015
This distinctive and popular chili is like barbecue in vegetable form: smoky and earthy with a rich caramelized sweetness, it works beautifully in partnership with grilled dishes, or as a component of soups and stews.
Sourcing: Grown in the American Southwest, chipotles are easy to find in dried form--check your local gourmet market, such as Whole Foods, or Latin market. They’re also commonly found canned in adobo sauce.
Storing: Whole dried chilies should be kept sealed in an airtight container and free of moisture. Canned chiles can be kept indefinitely.
