Chipotle Pepper

Flavor profile & uses

Chipotle Chili Pepper powder is dried, smoked jalapeño peppers that are then crushed into powder form. The pepper starts out green, and turns red as it ripens on the plant. After the pepper is dark red and begins to dry out, it is picked and put into a smoker. Wood, often pecan wood, is used to produce the smoke that flavors the peppers. It’s simple, so it reflects the overall essence of the chili it came from. It shares the same heat profile as a fresh jalapeño averaging 10K H.U. That places it in the lower-end of mild to medium heat chilies. Chipotle powder is earthy, and has a mild to medium spiciness with a distinctive smoky flavor.

  • Often used as a key ingredient in Mexican cuisine and Tex-Mex dishes.
  • It can be used in barbecue rubs or sauces to give it that smoky flavor, which can be rubbed or brushed onto steaks, chops, chicken, and other cuts of meat that will go on the grill.
  • An ingredient that chefs use in many dishes, including an emulsifier for ice creams, ripening agents for mozzarella cheese, and much more.
  • Often used as the main pepper for adobo and salsa recipes.
  • It is sometimes added to condiments such as mayonnaise or ketchup to spice them up.
  • It offers a spicy kick to potato salads, and is stunning when added to slow-cooked pinto beans that will cook down to refried beans.
  • Some people even enjoy balancing sweet and spicy flavors in desserts, and a chocolate brownie or cupcakes could easily benefit from the addition of a little chipotle powder.

How is the heat determined for Cayenne & Chili Peppers?

The Scoville scale is a measurement of the spicy heat of the cayenne and chili peppers, as reported in Scoville heat units (S.H.U. or H.U.), due to the capsaicin concentration. The substances that give the peppers their intensity when ingested are capsaicin and the related compounds known as capsaicinoids. The greater amount of these compounds there are in the chili, the hotter it is.

Warning: Excessive dose may cause gastrointenstinal irritation or heartburn, or exacerbate gastroesophageal reflux. Cayenne preparations irritate the mucous membranes and injured or broken skin.

Product: Organic Chipotle Chili Pepper Powder 10K H.U.

Outstanding product and service

I am enjoying this chipotle chili powder tremendously. I have found all the spices I've tried so far to be very fresh and high quality. Before finding Starwest Botanicals, I searched extensively for gluten-free spices, as I'm extremely sensitive to even tiny amounts from cross-contamination. Several other companies were unable to provide any assurances that their products are gluten-free, having been processed on shared equipment with gluten-containing products. Starwest Customer Service has been outstanding in responding in a thorough and timely manner to my questions about their products.

Using it regularly

For us who cherish our health too much to submit it to poisonous commercially grown products loaded with carcinogenic pesticides this Organic Chipotle is a god-sent. It goes into every pot of beans we cook and even our dog likes the taste.
