Chipotle chilies (Capsicum Annuum) are dried & smoked jalapeno. Because they've been smoked, they give dishes an addictive blend of earthy-fruity chile flavor, medium heat and bold smokiness. These chipotles are the darker morita variety.
Morita chipotle peppers are about 2-4 inches in length, 1 inch in width, and have a deep reddish brown color. They are darker and can be hotter than chipotle meco chilies (aka "brown chipotles").
Store chipotle chili peppers in an air-tight container in a cool, dark cupboard.
Chipotle chiles will retain their flavor for at least a year, but likely much longer.
