Making Your Own Chipotle Peppers From Jalapeno’s

A Chipotle pepper is a dry, smoked jalapeno pepper. They are most commonly made from red jalapenos. They are added to any dish that needs a smoky flavor with a little kick. Most of the natural ‘heat’ of the jalapeno is retained in the drying and smoking process.Typically it is about 5,000 to 10,000 Scoville Units. This is considered a “medium” heat in comparison to other chilies. Of course, you can take out the seeds and ribs of the jalapeno to make a milder version of the chipotle pepper. Typically the Chipotle is used to flavor soups, salsas, stews, sauces, and even an occasional dessert.
