Dried Chipotle Chillies 40g
Chipotle chillies are made from smoke-dried jalapeño chillies, which bring medium-hot spicy and a delicate smokiness to meat marinades and slow-cooked stews.
To cook, follow the instructions on the back of the packet. Wipe clean, remove stems and seeds. Then toast in a pan to release their flavour, and finally soak in boiling water for 15 minutes to rehydrate. Blend and use the chipotle chilli paste in chile con carne, or Mexican cooking sauces.
Dodie Miller, founder of Cool Chile Co, believes that there are certain warm, earthy flavours and smells that instantly transport you to Mexico. Whether it’s salsas and sauces made with toasted dried chillies, tortillas fresh from the comal, Mexican oregano rubbed over pozole, or black beans bubbling in a pot with epazote, these are the tastes and spice sensations that they want to bring into your home.
