Chipotle Meco Chile Peppers - Dried


Chipotle "Meco" chiles are smoked jalapenos that have a medium heat level with a smoky and grassy flavor. Unlike Chipotle "Morita" chiles, they are smoked twice as long for a more intense, rich flavor. Use them in Mexican or Tex-Mex style beef and chicken dishes, pork chops, salsas, and stews. You can lightly roast them to bring out more flavor.

Heat Level: Medium
