About National Totally Chipotle Day
National Totally Chipotle Day is celebrated on Cinco de Mayo, the day when Mexico won a significant battle against the French army.
Chipotle peppers are a type of smoked chili pepper that are primarily used in Mexican cuisine. The peppers are made by smoking and drying ripe jalapeño peppers, giving them a smoky and slightly sweet flavor.
The name "chipotle" comes from the Nahuatl word "chilpoctli," which means "smoked chili." Chipotle peppers are commonly used in a variety of dishes, including salsas, marinades, and sauces. They can also be used to add flavor to meats, vegetables, and soups.
Chipotle peppers are available in various forms, including whole peppers, ground powder, and canned in adobo sauce. The adobo sauce is made with vinegar, tomato paste, garlic, and other seasonings, which gives the peppers an additional tangy and slightly sweet flavor.
Chipotle peppers are also known for their heat, ranging from moderate to hot, depending on the specific pepper and how it is prepared. It's important to use them in moderation, especially if you're not accustomed to spicy foods.
