Chipotle Powder (Smoked Jalapeno) 30g - Spice & Co.
Spice & Co was established to provide PURE herbs and spices for people passionate about cooking with a quality ingredient.
Chipotle is sourced from Spain and is a naturally smoked product with an earthy sweet taste. Chipotle is made by drying ripened Jalapeno Chilli peppers (capsicum) in smokehouses fuelled with slow-burning oak wood. The smoke enhances the flavour by caramelizing the naturally present sugars. The chilli peppers are milled to a fine powder and used to add colour/flavour to dishes. Chefs tip - as with saffron, a little goes a long way and can easily dominate a dish so less is more!
Uses and Ideas:
- Make a Chipotle Mayonnaise by sauteing shallots with Chipotle Powder in olive oil and combining (when chilled) with quality mayonnaise - drizzle over seafood or chicken tacos or salads. - Add Chipotle Powder to Spanish paellas, Mediterranean style seafood/tomato soups and braised meat dishes. - Add Chipotle Powder to marinades or combine with sweet paprika and dust over baked/sauteed potatoes. - Chipotle gives a great flavour to red meat spice rubs or marinades.
- Chipotle adds an earthy dimension to braised lentils, Italian peperonata and pasta sauces. It goes well with poultry, beef/pork ribs, caramelised onions and roast root vegetables.
