Looking to add a little more fire to your cooking (and perhaps your life)? Cooking with chipotle peppers is a good way to add some spice to the meals you serve without going to dangerous extremes.
(Please see this painful video that shows a man suffering after he tries just one Bhut Jolokia Pepper…the hottest pepper in the world, for an example of what such extremes can do to overly intrepid explorers.)
Created using the much milder smoked jalapeno pepper, chipotle peppers are a delicious part of Mexican, Tex-Mex, and Southwestern cuisine which you can find in most supermarkets and health food stores (often in the international or spice aisles).
(Or, if you’d like to try making your own homemade chipotles from fresh jalapeno peppers, you can find out more here.)
Below are 9 delicious recipes that will help you enjoy the zesty and addictive flavor of chipotles.
