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.
- Heat level: 4,000-6,000 Scoville units
- Season grilled meat or veggies for a bright spiciness
- Sprinkle over dips like baba ghanoush and hummus
- Add to chocolate and fruit for a sweet/spicy kick!
The peppers are grown by Fire Tongue Farm in the cool, coastal climate of Santa Cruz, CA. The farmers Ryan and Levon specialize in growing chili peppers of all shapes and sizes, and they are dedicated to maintaining a healthy environment on and around their farmland, rotating between grazing sheep and growing peppers. You can taste the difference!
Their work builds healthy soil, prevents erosion, protects wildlife habitats and conserves water and other resources. Learn more at firetonguefarm.com
It has such a strong smoky flavor, and subtle heat -- great addition to the spice rack!
Generous Amounts and a Kitchen Upgrade
I'm glad I finally decided to try out Burlap and Barrel after seeing some favorite chefs use the spices. The education aspect of this brand, plus ethical practices is what stands out to me. When receiving my order, all jars were filled to the top, so I'm definitely getting my money's worth. The quality is evident in the aroma, taste, and texture of the spices. This brand is a gem for your kitchen, and YES, upgrading your spices is WORTH IT.
The roasted, smoky aroma and taste are there, in a “comfort-food” way, but the flavors of the pepper really makes it shine.
I sprinkle this spice literally on everything I eat these days. Be it fried eggs, tuna sandwich, or pasta. So so good.
The smoked chipotle is great, works well in many dishes/sauces, not super spicy
