Our Smoked Chipotle chili peppers were grown on Fire Tongue Farm in California and smoked over fruit tree branches pruned from a nearby orchard.
A chipotle is a smoked jalapeño pepper, so these are the darker, deeper siblings to our El Jefe–variety Red Jalapeños. They're medium-hot and are perfect for cooking or garnishing, in a tomato sauce, with eggs or on fresh fruit.

I ordered these Smoked Chipotle Flakes because they sounded interesting and different. So far, I’ve sprinkled them on my eggs and avacado toast and love them. A very unique taste - not too hot, just right. I’m looking forward to our weather cooling off here enough in Central Florida for that first batch of chili so I can add this flavor to my chili spice mix!
I am playing with the Smoked Chipolte, learning the flavor intensity, as you advise! So much fun! Everyone who enters my kitchen is introduced to your spices, beginning with the fragrance of WILD MOUNTAIN CUMIN.
Love everything about Burlap & Barrel, especially their fresh and flavorful spices!
We love the complex full flavor of the Smoked Chipotle flakes in rubs for chicken. Does not even begin to compare with the store bought red pepper flakes.
Absolutely love this spice it is my go to on almost all my meals. Sprinkle on salad, eggs, pasta, soup, chili and pizza.
