This was so easy I couldn't believe it! We love the flavor of chipoltes...and we use them as often as we can...but they can get expensive. So...we did our own!
For Thanksgiving, smoked a brisket instead of a turkey. I looked up way to make our own chipoltes. And lo and behold...they are jalapenos...smoked. I grabbed a half dozen at the grocery store... sliced them in half...threw em on the smoker with our brisket.
We did a taste test comparison between a store-bought chipolte and the ones we smoked. And guess what? They tasted the same. Well...maybe ours were a LITTLE better...ours were fresh!
