Also known as “Chipotle Meco,” brown chipotles are ripe red jalapeños which have been dried and smoked. Brown chipotles are distinct from “morita” both in flavor and appearance: they are larger and have been smoked considerably longer, resulting in a dusty brown color. Brown chipotles boast a richly smoky flavor with undertones of cacao and a deep, subtle heat. Unlike moritas, brown chipotles are not often seen or used north of their native Mexico. The technique of smoking peppers to preserve them for later use is said to date back to ancient Aztec civilizations in central-southern Mexico.
