Morita is the diminutive of Mora, which means “blackberry” in Spanish. Chipotle is from the Nahuatl word chilpoctli, which means "smoked chile" (chil = chile; poctli = smoke). Chipotle morita are smoked morita chiles, which, as their name suggests, have a sweeter, fruitier and superior flavour than do generic chipotle chiles, which are usually smoked jalapeños. While the ground form is convenient to use and great for dry rubs, whole chipotle morita has a better flavour and a much longer shelf life. Soak to use.
