Totally Chipotle Day

I don’t think it’s any coincidence that Totally Chipotle Day falls on Cinco de Mayo, do you?


The tradition of smoking a jalapeño thereby turning it into a chipotle pepper has been a part of Texas cuisine since it was passed down to us by the Aztecs. The Aztecs smoked the chilies similar to the way they smoked their meats. This would allow the peppers to be stored and used when they were ready to add some fire to whatever they were cooking. Jalapeños are prone to rot quickly so by drying the chilies the Aztecs, from what is now Northern Mexico City, were able to store them for a considerably long period of time.

So, in honor of Totally Chipotle Day and Cinco de Mayo, here are some Chipotle recipes from the LCRB:
