We Like Our Smokey Chipotle to Be Dirty!

Here's yet another quality manufacturer that has realized the awesome flavor of the Smoky Chipotle!

The Dirty Potato Chip Company describes their latest flavor as: A smooth, smoky taste at first, then the heat of chipotle comes up and grabs you.

If you are not a Chile-head you might find these spicy, but I think a practicing fiery food eater would find these on more on the tingly side. They did however make a wonderful accompaniment to my favorite sandwich the Chipotle Bird. But that my friends is a whole other blog post!

Chipotle and Tequila Cheese Fondue... Yum!

We found this recipe on a fantastic blog by chef and writer Viviane Bauquet Farre.

Her spin on the classic cheese fondue takes a modern look at a forgotten favorite from the past.

Chef Viviane recommends using a Reposado Tequila or Mezcal so that the flavors of the tequila come through the cheese and help cut the richness of the fondue.

Here at The Smoky Chipotle we're gonna fire up the blender and make some great margaritas to go with this decadent appetizer!

You can find Chef Viviane's Recipe at food & style. Let her know you found it at The Smoky Chipotle!
