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.

Kicked Chili Waaay Up
What a winner in tonight’s chili! Adding Smoked Chipotle along with several other Burlap & Barrel spices made it phenomenal.
Next level amazing
Received these in my spice club shipment. This spice is my new go to. It has heat, sure, but that smoky delicious flavor takes it to another level. I could put this on anything. It gives food a rich depth that is unlike any other type of chili flake. Get this you will not be disappointed.
Burlap and Barrell sets the quality bar
Everything I have ordered from Burlap and Barrel is superb. Chipotle is terrific. And the cinnamon is out of this world
This is now my favorite secret weapon for cooking beans from dry. Completely transforms the dish. Love. Love. Love.
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!
SATISFACTION AND FUN!
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!
