Say it, Eat it: Chipotle

Written by: Shannon Bryan

Chipotle [chi poht lay]

It’s a jalapeño. Specifically, a really ripened jalapeño that’s been smoke-dried. Hence that smoky chipotle flavor. Chipotle also makes good burritos in a fast casual environment.

Hear it:

Eat it:

  • Try the Taquitos De Puerco, featuring slow-cooked chipotle pork at Zapoteca
  • The chicken tacos at The Front Room are made with chipotle stewed local chicken
  • Both the fried plantains and smoky potato fritters at El Rayo Taqueria are served with an awesome chipotle dipping sauce.
