Smoked Jalapeños add that certain quality in a good salsa that can’t be had in any other way. It’s also the perfect way to use a large quantity of jalapeños when you purchased a few too many.
As an added curiosity, isn’t it funny that at Chipotle (the restaurant) they don’t have Chipotle (the pepper) anywhere on the menu? The only place you’ll find it is in a little bottle manufactured by the Tobacco company.
