Chipotle, pronounced "chi-POHT-lay," comes from the Nahuatl words "chilpoctli" or "xipoctli" meaning "smoked chile pepper." The Nahuatl language is what the Aztecs spoke, a group of South American people who lived in what is today the central region of Mexico.

Chipotles are from the species Capsicum annuum, and they have become quite popular in the United States over the last several decades, particularly in Tex-Mex dishes. Chipotles remain a popular part of Mexican cuisine as well, being incorporated into Mexican dishes with a variety of other chiles.

Chipotle Meco Chiles are from jalapenos left on the plant long enough to ripen and turn red fully. At this point, they are harvested and smoked dried for several days. Of the two types of Chipotle Chiles, Morita and Meco, the Chipotle Mecos are dried for twice as long as the Morita chiles.

 

Chipotle Meco Chiles are also referred to as chile Meco.

 

Flavor Profile

Chipotle Meco Powder is deeply smoky, mildly spicy, and has a grassy fruitiness.

 

Heat Level

Chipotle Meco Chile Powder is considered a medium heat chile powder and has a rating of 13,000-28,000 SHU, or Scoville Heat Units.

 

How to Use

Chipotle Meco Chile Powder tends to hold up better against strong flavors than Chipotle Morita Chile Powder would. Mecos are the preferred chipotle for Mexican chefs, so this powder fits in nicely when you are making Mexican dishes. It's good in enchiladas, mole sauce, adobo-based marinades, and black bean-based dishes.

Chipotles pair well with beef, chicken, and pork chops.

excellent chile powder This chili powder is very tasty and aromatic. So MUCH BETTER than store bought. One of my favorite items is to sprinkle this on a tortilla that has been spread with avocado and sour cream. Spices is a great place to buy seasonings.
