CHIPOTLE MECO PEPPER DRIED
Chipotle Meco Peppers are smoked jalapenos and are used primarily in Mexican and Tex-Mex cuisines. Jalapenos are the species Capsicum annuum. The harder-to-find Chipotle Meco Pepper chiles are also known as Chile “Meco” or Chipotle Tipico.
Heat Level and Flavor Profile
Chipotle Meco Pepper Chiles are considered medium heat chile and come in at 5,000 to 10,000 SHU (Scoville Heat Units).
The flavor profile is smoky with a slightly spicy, grassy fruitiness. The “Meco” also tends to hold up better than the “Morita” to stronger flavors.
Whole Brown Chipotle Chiles can be used to enhance the flavor in chili, enchilada sauces, stew, barbecue ribs, or cornbread. Their unique smoky flavoring complements poultry, red meats, and fall squash.
We also carry a growing selection of Mexican chiles with the most popular being Ancho Chiles, Pasilla Chiles, Habanero Chiles, and Guajillo Chiles. If you prefer the convenience of powder then check out our Chipotle “Meco” Chile Powder.
You’ll also find a nice selection of chile powders and chile flakes.
