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.

Oh Smoked Chipotle how I love thee! I don’t know if it’s possible, but I think I’ve actually fallen in love with a spice! I use this warm and savory smoked chipotle in SO many foods: a savory egg dish, a red lentil stew, in salads, sprinkled on top of meats and fish, I even broke with tradition and put a dash of finely ground Smoked Chipotle on a scoop of vanilla ice cream and on top of my peanut butter cookies (yum!). I’m already on my 3rd jar of the stuff, have given it to friends and family, and often dream of more food dishes to try it out in. It was a “newbie” to my spice rack in 2020 and now it’s my “go to” spice for 2021.
