As Paris Hilton would say: "That's hot!"
Heads up folks, we got a hot one comin' through! May 5th is Totally Chipotle Day (pronunciation hint: "chipotle" rhymes with "totally"), conveniently coinciding with Cinco de Mayo to honor the uniquely Mexican heritage of the chipotle pepper. Chipotles are a very popular kind of smoke-dried jalapeno chili that are found quite frequently in Mexican and Mexican-American cuisine.
On Totally Chipotle Day we pay tribute to this flavorful chili and cook chipotle-inclusive meals in its honor. And don't worry about reaching for that water bottle just yet -- the unique chipotle smoking process lessens the burn you might have experienced with other jalapenos peppers. But if spicy sauces are your thing, be my guest and include them in your wonderful chipotle meals today!
