Chilli Chipotle Ground peppers are smoked, dried Jalapeño chiles. They appeared when the Aztecs used to add dried chilli to food as a preservation method. They have a rich smokey flavour, with nutty, leathery notes that blend well with other strong flavours. Chipotle flavouring is widely used throughout Mexico, the United States and more recently in Australia. It can be used in soups, stews and casseroles. It also has a variety of health benefits to defend against intestinal diseases and aid in weight loss. The ground form is easier to use but is not as strong as using the whole smoked chipotle chillies.
