been reading several posts that mention chipotles....what exactly are they???? it`s obviously some form of pepper, however other than here on the forum I have never heard of them. I like things pretty hot but not unbearable. I use fairly regularly, and have homegrown, habanero..cayenne...and jalapeno....can anyone shed some light on these mysterious ( to me anyway ) chipotles and or any uses of them....[p]Thanks..Wess
April is getting closer..LOL

    WessB,
    Chipotles are smoked jalapenos. It is not super spicy, and has a distinctive smoky flavor. Have heard of folks making their own Chipotles on humpty. [p]HTH. April certainly is approaching quickly!

  • Nature Boy,[p] Yes, jalapeños. More specifically, red jalapeños. Chipotle powder is probably my favorite condiment. For more info on how to make them, try one of the following:[p]http://www.randyq.addr.com/chiles/chipotles.html

    MikeO,
    Thanks for all the great links..that was definately informative..might just look into making some myself as it is just about time to think about whats going in the garden this year..I would personally lean towards a powder, I did that with my cayennes from last year...dehydrate and grind them..use that stuff in a whole lot of things I cook.[p]Wess

    WessB,[p]I've dried peppers before, that I have grown in my garden. Jalapeno's, Serrano (sp) and other's. How do you get them to a powder? Just keep grinding with your food processor?[p]Thanks WessB,[p]Mick

    MickeyT.,[p]You could use a morter/pestle also.[p]

    MickeyT.,
    I bought a coffe grinder that I use for nothing but peppers...works great..and honestly..the first time I did any, I used my pepper grinder..was a royal PIA and took hours. I have a dehydrator that I used to dry them and then just grind em up into powder and put it into and empty spice jar..[p]Wess

  • WessB,
    that is what I use too...awesome!
