First time chipotle's

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Actually probably not technically chipotles, since I believe they use red jalapenos for those , but smoked jalapenos none the less..

Smoked them for 10 hours @ around 180 or so, until all the moisture was out..

Not sure what I'll do with it yet. Maybe make some raspberry chipotle sauce? any suggestions?

There is alway the same off uses like for pizza and then you can grind it and use it as spicing your food. I'm not sure how to make adobe sauce but I'm sure there is someone here that does know how to. Check with cowgirls site she mite have it.

Those look great. I'm waiting for mine to be ripen, then I'll be smoking them too.

Congrats on a great smoke my friend. Technically, any chile/pepper can be a chipotle, all that is required is that it be smoke dried. The red jalapeno is mostly used over the green. You can use the whole chile pod in an adobo, folks usually just chop them up when they use them. The main difference between a marinade and an adobo is that vinegar is used in an adobo. You'll have fun regardless of how you use the jalapenos. Enjoy.
