In case you are wondering what exactly is a chipotle, I had no idea before I started maxing Mexican/Spanish and Tex-Mex recipes, a chipotle is a smoked dried ripe jalapeno chili prepper. This Chipotle can be bought in a jar with adobe oil or as a ground up powder as the one we are using in this recipe. It has a rich flavorful and strong and moderately hot taste. Use sparingly as a little goes a long way to enhance any recipe.
