Chipotle chiles are smoked, and then dried. Their aremany different beliefs
regarding the difference between brown and morita chipotles. One understanding
is that the brown chipotles are the green jalapenos and the moritas are the red,
fully mature chipotles. Fully ripening gives these morita chiles a unique,
medium hot, smoky flavor which is popular in many southwestern dishes. These
peppers are about 2-4 inches in length, 1 inch in width, and have a deep reddish
brown color. The word chipotle translates to smoked chile. Consider the chipotle
a 6.5 on a scale of 1-10 (10 being the hottest).
