Fiesta Corn


Chipotle powder, is made by finely grinding jalapenos peppers that were slowly smoked over a natural wood fire. 

 
This slow smoking of the jalapenos peppers create a chipotle powder that imparts a wonderfully smoky & spicy flavor to whatever it is added to. Chipotle powder has a long history of use in traditional Mexican cuisine and in recent years has become commonplace in the United States, especially the southwest.

Are you celebrating Valentine's Day at home with your sweetheart?

Happy Valentine's Day!

  11. This does sound like a great way to add some zip to corn. I do not have a big variety of corn recipes, but this does look well worth trying. Great info on the chipotle powder, I really had no clue what pepper it came from! Enjoy the day!
