Do a search on "chipotle" on the Mex Grocer site and you'll see what I mean.

I don't see the Mecos here, just the moritas.

The meco chipotles are to the right of the list under ancho chillis and above De Arbol. Well they are on my web page, wonder if it is different when seen in the U.S.A.?

It is just so brilliant that we can buy these chillis so far from Mexico. Haven't sussed out how to do smilies yet, but that is a definite thumbs up one.

so do chipotles have to be jalapenos or does chipotle refer to the smoking/drying process? but,as i said earlier to steve,whatever they were they were delicious,no heat but the fresh chillies i put in the dish whacked the heat up a treat.by the way can anyone identify the fresh green chillies from the pics? they were just in a pack of "mixed medium heat chillies"

All chipotles start as jalapenos. I buy chipotles from a Mexican market because I don't like the canned ones they sell in the grocery store. The ones I get are Mecos, though I didn't know they were called that until I started doing a little reading online.

EDIT: Here is a nice little article that explains all things chipotle:

From the article linked above, those look like Moritas. Sounds like they are the same thing, just not smoked as long as the Mecos.

Thank you for posting that interesting article on chillies.

Can you easily get Pimientos de Padron in the States? I had some of those tonight, not a lot of hot ones though.
