More info

Brown chipotle chiles are made from the jalapeno pepper. Jalapeno chiles are smoked to dry them. There are many different beliefs regarding the difference between brown and morita chipotles. One understanding is that the brown chipotles are the green jalapenos and the moritas are the red, fully mature Chipotles. These peppers are about 1-1/2 to 3 inches in length with long, vein-like ridges and a tan to coffee brown color. Consider the Chipotle a 5 on a scale of 1-10 (10 being the hottest).

Cooking Ideas

Use Chipotles in enchilada sauces, chili, stews, barbecue ribs, and corn bread. Their smoky quality combines well with poultry, meats and fall squash.

Directions on how to Rehydrate

Stem and seed the chiles, then place them in a skillet, on a comal, or in a 250 degree oven and dry-roast them for three to four minutes. Shake them once or twice and be careful not to scorch them or else they will taste bitter. The chiles should then be added to water that has been heated to just below the boiling point - if it is boiling, the chiles will lose flavor. Use just enough water to cover the chiles and press them down with a lid. Allow them to sit for 20 minutes or until they are soft.

or

To reconstitute dried Chili pods, remove stem and seeds. Place chiles in a pot of water that is just about to boil. Remove from heat and allow to soak for 20-30 minutes or until tender. Once chiles are reconstituted, place in a blender or food processor to chop.

How to Store

Store dried chiles (and chile powder) in an airtight container in a cool, dry, dark place. Although it is possible to store them for extended periods of time, it is better to use them within six months. If you do keep them longer, check through them occasionally and discard any that have spoiled.
