Chipotle Flakes are granulated, dried and smoked chipotle (Morita) chile peppers. When fully ripened Morita chiles have a deep reddish brown color and are about 2-4 inches in length and 1 inch width. Primarily used in southwest dishes these peppers make a great addition to meat, fish and vegetables. Sprinkle some on mashed potatos for adding a wonderful smoky flavor. They are medium hot and range on the overal heat scale of 5-6.5 out of 10.
