The Profile

Chipotle Peppers

Chipotle peppers are smoked & dried jalapeños. Sometimes they are ground & may be added to flavor rubs or sprinkled into chili for rich heat with loads of depth. However, they may also be purchased in a delicious adobo sauce. Adobo sauce is a simple blend of chili powder, vinegar, sugar & spices that may be used to add wonderful flavor to steak, chicken & pork as well. The smoked, dried peppers were originally used as a means to preserve meats long before the Aztecs. Learn how to prep & use these delicious peppers in some of your favorite recipes.

How To Prep & Use Chipotle Peppers 

Wearing a pair of disposable gloves is highly recommended when prepping any hot peppers including chipotle peppers in adobo as the flesh, seeds & oils will irritate the skin which may translate to a tingling sensation on the tips of your fingers without them. Always keep a box handy in the kitchen to use for a variety of cooking tasks.

Chipotle peppers may be purchased in cans or jars. Once open, remove a pepper or two with the gloves on, place them on a cutting board, then finely mince them. Next, measure the amount needed for recipe applications. They are tasty when included in hummus, pimiento cheese & aioli but offer good flavor to a variety of classic Mexican tortas. Be certain to stir in a bit of the adobo sauce, too. Transfer any remaining peppers from the can into a plastic container with a tight fitting lid. Store in the refrigerator up to two months.
