Chile Peppers, Morita Chipotle
Morita Black-and-Red Whole Dried Chipotle Chile Peppers
Black and Red Chipotle chiles average around a 6 on the 1-10 heat scale. These chiles, nicknamed "Morita" are more attractive than the brown chipotles, with flavor a bit fuller and fruitier. They average 10 chiles per ounce in dried form. These peppers have been the hottest (figuratively) in America's current enthrallment with chiles. One of several varieties of jalapenos gently roasted over a fire, the end result packs a good amount of zip with a nice smokey flavor.
Add them to salsa, chili, beans and rice, spicy breadsticks, corn bread, or barbeque sauces.
