Chipotle Morita, Ground
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. This ground form is convenient to use and great for dry rubs, marinades and as an ingredient in sausages and ground meats.
