Chipotle Chilli Powder


Chipotle Chilli Powder by Hatton Hill. Grown, harvested and dried in Spain. Packed in the UK.

Chipotle chillies are fully ripened jalapeño chillis that are smoke-dried and bursting with a delightfully smoky, slightly chocolatey flavour and medium heat. They register up to around 8,000 heat units on the Scoville scale, making them slightly hotter than the green jalapeño chillis dished up in Mexican restaurants, which typically rate around 5,000 heat units. The technique of smoke-drying jalapeños can be traced back to early food preservation practices used in Mesoamerica before the Aztecs. This form of chilli was brought to Spain from the New World, where it later spread to the rest of Europe, India and elsewhere. Our chipotle chilli powder imparts a relatively mild but earthy spiciness to Mexican, Tex-Mex and Southwestern United States dishes.

The intriguing combination of smokiness and peppery heat makes our chipotle chilli powder perfect for many uses. It can be added to Mexican or Mexican-inspired soups, barbeque sauces, stews and beans, and added to spice rubs or sprinkled over vegetables. It also goes well with beans, pickled vegetable mixes and scrambled eggs.
