Earthy Delights Chipotles are a true culinary
gem. The distinctive flavor of the Chipotle
or “smoked chile” is created by smoking
and drying fresh jalapeño chile peppers.
This process gives the jalapeño a unique,
medium-hot smoke flavor that continues to
entice a global palate.
To reconstitute, soak the Chipotles in hot tap water for 20–60 minutes or until soft, then
drain. Toasting the
Chipotle before re-hydrating will enhance
the depth and complexity of the flavor, but
keep in mind toasting is not required in the
use of the Chipotle.
The Chipotle will last for 12 to 24 months
if kept in low humidity and alone in a plastic
bag or container.
