Chipotles contain vitamin A, C, the B vitamins and significant amounts of iron, thiamine, niacin, magnesium and riboflavin. Chiles are cholesterol-free, saturated fat-free, low calorie, low sodium, and high in fiber.
Mostly used to flavor salsas, sauces, chili, stews, and soups, chipotles may be ground to make a table spice. Blend with olive oil, garlic, and salt to make a marinade for poultry and pork. They are commonly found canned in red adobo sauce, a mixture of spices, tomatoes, onions, and vinegar.
The smoked chipotle is one of the most famous of chiles. Chipotles are widely used in Mexican and Southwestern cuisines.
Any chile dried by a smoking process is called a chipotle, pronounced, "chee-POHT-lay." Jalapeños are the most common chile used for chipotles, but serranos and others are also used. While usually smoked when the fresh chile is red, typical chipotles sold in North American markets are smoked while green, giving it a whitish tan color. A smoked dried huachinango chile, called the chipotle grande, offers a similar flavor, but is larger. The chile dates back many centuries to the region that is now northern Mexico City. The Aztecs especially prized this chile, using the same drying process they used to dry meat.
