A Caribbean Garden is on a distinguished road

According to Wikipedia “A chipotle is a smoke-dried jalapeño chili used primarily in Mexican, Mexican-American, Tex-Mex, and Mexican-inspired cuisine… Until recently, chipotles were almost exclusively found in the markets of central and southern Mexico .”

Well that last sentence quite explains why barely anyone in the Caribbean knows what a chipotle is.

I first had chipotle when friends took me out for dinner in Virginia and I tried the chipotle mashed potatoes at their suggestion. I loved it-the warm smoky flavour and just a slight kick. I subsequently bought a packet of chipotle and tried it in baked potatoes, black beans, stews etc. Everyone I served these dishes to said “what’s that smoky taste? It’s delicious”. Chipotle suppliers could very well look into the Caribbean market, as its apparently something that appeals to Caribbean taste buds.



I recently tried the ground chipotle and found it really convenient for quick dishes or when prep time is limited. Its also pretty dusted on top of food.



I stocked up on these whole and ground chilpotles at the Ferry Building Farmer's Market in San Francisco.
