SHÔLO Dried Morita Pepper 100g
Morita peppers are a type of chipotle pepper made from smoked, red-ripe jalapeno peppers. The main difference is that Moritas are smoked for less time, which leaves them softer and retains their slightly fruity flavor. They are very richly flavored.
Morita means purple in Spanish. The color makes for an attractive chipotle and evokes tomato and raspberry.
Its heat level clocks in at 13,000 to 28,000 on Scoville Heat Scale, giving off a pleasant heat without singeing the palate. Whole Morita chile peppers can be added to marinades, brines, and homemade pickles. For a chile puree, soak whole chipotles in warm water for 15-20 minutes before pureeing in a blender or food processor. Add water or vinegar to thin the puree to your desired consistency. Use this chipotle puree to add sweet, smokey heat to barbecue sauce, stews, chili con carne, salsas, and soups. Ingredients: Chipotle chiles.
