Generally, a chipotle is a smoked red ripe jalapeño. Chipotle (pronounced chi-poht-lay) also spelled chilpotle, comes from the Nahuatl word chilpoctli (meaning “smoked chili”) and is used primarily in Mexican and Mexican-inspired cuisines.
The two main types of chipotle chiles, “Morita” and “Meco”, are both smoked red ripe jalapeños. The Meco chilis are left on the bush even longer than those picked as red jalapeños to be sold at markets. Once the peppers start losing their moisture they are harvested to become “Meco” chipotles.
