*A chipōtlé meco is a pecan smoked green jalapeño, not a variety of its own. It can never be found fresh but, if you’re willing to smoke it yourself, I do have seeds for the jalapeño.

**This value represents the heat rating that I would expect to give to a sauce using this pepper as its main ingredient. Other ingredients or particularly high purity may result in a slightly stronger sauce, while lower concentrations will yeild a weaker one and other products may vary.
