Chipotles are smoked jalapeno chillies, giving
a definite heat but also a deeply smoky, savoury flavour. The flesh is
thick so the chilli is best if used in a slow-cooked dish rather than
raw. Added to a soup or stew, the chipotle chillies add an almost 'meaty'
depth of flavour and are really good in a vegetable-based dish for this
Add whole chipotles to a
soup, stew, chile or in the braising liquid for meats. Superb cooked with
beans or pulses.
