Chuma Chipotle Mix is so good, it won a taste contest from the future! Back in the end of 2008 I received a couple of samples from my friends at Chuma Chipotle to try out and blog about for my fairly new “lifestyle” section here. The sticker on the bottle, as you can see, shows they won the 2009 Fiery Food Challenge.
What is Chipotle anyway?
I never really knew what Chipotle was until writing this blog. Chipotle is a fully ripened and smoked jalapeno pepper. Sounds good to me. I love peppers, hot sauces and anything with a kick. Hold the Cilantro though.
Chuma’s is a family recipe which comes from the southern state of Oaxacan in Mexico. The mix is chunky and very unique in flavor. I can taste the smokey flavor of the jalapenos and a sort of relishy bit as well.
I devoured my Chuma Mix in an instant. It would be great on tortilla chips, enchiladas, tacos and burritos. Damn, I’m getting hungry again.
Thanks to my pals at Chuma for sending the mix in. Now that it is 2009, I’m sure they’ll be winning some 2010 contests soon!
