A chipotle is a smoke-dried jalapeño. Smokey but mild. It’s a chili used primarily in Mexican and Mexican-inspired dishes. The smoky flavor of this infused olive oil is great for marinating steaks and brushing on grilled chicken or seafood. Drizzle over vegetables or pizza for a spicy and smokey flavor. Excellent dipping oil for artisan bread, finish on soups, pasta, or grain dishes. Also, a remarkable base for dressings and marinades! Spicy, but not too hot for most people.
