Chipotles and all their processed forms are very versatile. With the possible exception of some desserts, cooks can use them in just about any recipe. For example, add a few dashes of a chipotle hot sauce to a bloody mary and taste the difference! Chef and author Mark Miller described the flavor of chipotles in one of his books as “smoky and sweet in flavor with tobacco and chocolate tones, a Brazil nut finish, and a subtle, deep, rounded heat.” In another book, he added “leather, coffee, and mushrooms” as flavor components. We believe that smoked jalapeños are much more interesting and flavorful than the fresh ones. Read the entire article, “Chipotles in the Kitchen,” with recipes, here.
