Chipotle chilis are smoked jalapeño chilis. Invented by the Aztecs to preserve the jalapeño as it was prone to rotting when being dried. This chili has all the heat of the jalapeño plus a beautiful slightly sweet, smoky flavor. This has recently become a very popular chili as the flavour is so good. Try adding to mayonnaise for a great tasting dip or to chili for that lovely smoky flavour.
