We have been making chili for Squashed ordered regularly. In the past few months, as the weather has gotten colder, it has become out best selling dish. Typically I make it fairly mild in temperature but I had a special request for some heat on this particular order.
I have found that using jalapeno peppers (which i generally add to chili) does not give much heat. It offers a small taste but mostly just a nutty pepper flavor. For this special order, I used chipotle pepper. The heat was escalated a noticeable degree and referred to as Inferno!
I honestly did not feel in was crazy spicy but it did have a nice heat to it. Our customers we all happy with the heat it brought so it was a great success!
