Chipotle Morita Chile Peppers - Dried
Chipotle "Morita" chiles, unlike "Meco" chiles, are smoked jalapenos harvested when they are still green ("Meco" chiles are jalapenos harvested once fully ripe). Because of this, they have a medium heat with less smoke than their counterpart. You can use them the same way you would a "Meco" chile, in salsas, stews, and chicken dishes, especially if you are not a fan of smoky flavors.
Heat Level: Medium
