Chipotle is a jalapeño pepper brought to full maturity, turning red, which is then dried and smoked. It is often known in North America canned in Adobo sauce. The meco is by far our favorite chipotle. It gets its beige-amber color from being left to dry on the plant, even once it has matured, which also causes it to discolor under the harsh sun. The chipotle is then slowly smoked at a low temperature, until a rich and deep smoky flavor is obtained. It’s the perfect pepper to add a bit of heat and a natural BBQ taste.
