Description

A Chipotle is a dried and smoked red Jalapeño pepper. They are known for their spicy, sweet and smoky smell and taste. Because the Jalapeños are fully ripened they have extra flavour and are sweeter than the fresh green Jalapeño. The word Chipotle originates from Nahuatl (indigenous language in Mexico) and means smoked chilli. It is a very well-known and indispensable product in Mexican cuisine.

Chipotle mayonnaise is a tasty and simple dish, make your own mayonnaise or buy a bottle in the supermarket and add some ground Chipotle and garlic. The result is a slightly spicy sweet mayonnaise that tastes delicious on a burger, fries or as a dip!

Preparation
– Fry the dried chillies in a dry frying pan on medium heat for about 2 minutes. This will release the essential oils and give them more flavour. Then rehydrate by soaking them in hot water for about 15/20 minutes, then chop as you prefer.
– Place the dried chillies in a food processor and grind them until they have the coarse texture you prefer, flakes or powder.

To keep dried chillies fresh for a long time, it’s best to store them in an airtight container in the pantry or even better, in the freezer. Avoid exposure to air, moisture, light and heat, which can cause the dried chillies to discolour, mould and lose their flavour.

The dried chillies have a long shelf life, but for optimum flavour and spiciness we advise to not store them for longer than a year. Click here for more information on storing and freezing dried chillies.
