Feature Spice: Chipotle Chilli Powder

Botanical Name:

Capsicum Frutescens

Taste Profile

A rich, smokey & medium-heat chilli powder that's earthy & tangy.

Parts Used:

The Jalapeno’s ripe red flesh which eventually dries and shrivels up after undergoing the smoking process.


Originating in Chihuahua, Chipotle Chilli Powder is a Mexican favourite, made from the Morita variety of Jalapenô Peppers that have been smoked whole over a wood fire for days then ground. It's believed the Aztecs used this smoking process to preserve the thick-fleshed jalapenôs as they tended to rot before drying.

Perfect For:

Chipotle Chilli Powder provides a delicious, smokey yet moderate heat to both red & white protein. Use it to add incredible depth to chilli con carne, stews, sauces, & casseroles. Or add some boldness to soups & salsa. If you're feeling daring, add it to a hot chocolate for a winter warmer with a smokey, sweet kick.

Non-Culinary Uses:

Chipotle Chilli Powder has been known to aid in weight loss, improve digestion, and reduce blood pressure.
*Please consult your health care professional if your intended use is in place of prescribed medications.
