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. An excellent dipping oil for artisan breads, finish on soups, pasta or grain dishes. Also a wonderful base for dressings and marinades! Spicy, but not too hot for most people.
