Wake Up Those Taste Buds With Chipolte Sauce, a Low Calorie Option for Dieters

Chipolte Sauce is suddenly 'all the rage'. So what are Chipoltes?

Chipoltes are smoked, dried jalapeno peppers that hold a very unique taste - an exotic taste. And exotic is 'always in style'.

It's not only exotic - it's low in calories and it's fun to make. You may even choose to roast the peppers yourself.  

How to Roast Chipolte Peppers

Do such by placing them onto a hot grill, then turning them as the skins change colors. Cool the peppers, then remove the jackets very carefully.

You may also roast the pepper indoors should you prefer, but of course - using your oven and not your grill.

However, there are heavy iron pans which have grill marks which can be used on your stove top. They generally work on gas and electric stoves.

You will want to use protective gloves when working with the hot peppers and it's not a bad idea to put on some protective goggles.

I can't count the occasions when I've accidentally touched my face or eyes when working with hot peppers and it's very painful.
