Get to know your chilés!

Chipotle Morita

Chipotle is an iconic pepper and one of the most well-known chilés
available in the market. What most people don’t know is that there
are more than one!
Chipotle by definition is a Jalapeño pepper that is smoke-dried,
but the difference between the Meco and Morita versions are the
ripeness of the pepper and the degree to which they are smoked.

Morita Chilé is a Jalapeño that is picked while green or at the
beginning of ripening. It is smoke-dried and the final product is
noticeably smoky with a bright, pungent, and somewhat acidic/citrus
spicy flavor.
Moritas are the spicier version with a boldness that cuts through
other components in the dish with a focused flavor that suits them well
to use with other bold ingredients. Moritas are typically
used in adobo sauce and the version that most classic recipes call for.
The color of the powder and food seasoned with Morita is a deep
burgundy red which lends the classic color and presentation to
Adobo sauce or any application you choose.

Come enjoy the bold, beautiful, and bright flavor that is Morita Chipotle!

Chipotle Meco

Meco Chilé is a Jalapeño that is picked when it is very ripe,
at the end of the growing season. It is smoke-dried and
the final product is pronouncedly smokier than Moritas are.
Meco Chipotles are typically smoked for longer and the higher
sugar content of the mature pepper breaks down which creates
many layers of complex and nuanced flavors. The spiciness
is milder and the flavor is broader in spectrum with a progression
of flavors from the beginning of the bite until the end.
These subtler flavors are best appreciated where this chilé is the
star of the show and served with simpler garnish and accompaniment.
You will be duly rewarded if you give this chilé room to fully shine.
The Meco powder is brown due to the longer smoking and food cooked
with it is a dark red to coffee color, much like a molé.

These peppers are very mature when harvested so they are sweeter
with a rich depth of flavor, most people have never tasted!

Chipotle 50/50

As you guessed, this is a 50/50 blend of Morita and Meco Chipotles!
It’s hard to have a favorite between the pure versions of each or
the 50/50 blend as each of them has something unique to offer.
The Moritas are bright and focused, the Mecos are smokey and rich
with complex flavors, and in the 50/50 blend the Moritas cut through
first with an assertive spicy punch while the Mecos fill in all the
blanks left unsaid for a full spectrum flavor unlike any
chipotle you have tried before!

All of our products come vacuum sealed in a non-reactive and food safe Mylar bag with a tamper-evident and heat-sealed tear-away strip. The Mylar bag features a reusable zipper closure for ease of use and storage which eliminates needing to transfer the product to another container. These bags are light, oxygen, and odor-blocking for maximum protection from environmental factors that cause oxidation and rapid aging of volatile oils and flavor compounds. All of our products are sealed in these Mylar bags the day they are batched to ensure the best preservation of freshness and quality possible. Each product will also contain a 3-gram silica gel Tyvek desiccant packet to help absorb any moisture and oxygen in the bag over the course of its use. The desiccant packets are FDA approved as pharmaceutical/food grade and 100% non-toxic. We strongly encourage you to press all air out of the bag after each use before zipping close and to store bags in a cool place away from direct sunlight or any heat sources, such as an oven or microwave.


-This is what we believe in, it’s why we are here-

                        In this industry, all the big players in the market have to produce at such large volumes in order to be able to anticipate the demand of the market that product is often stockpiled and sitting around waiting for distribution. “It’ll always be available and it’s always on the shelf” is something you can count on. The downside is that when you go shopping and buy a jar of seasoning from any major brand in a grocery store the odds are very high that the product you picked up was produced a long, long time ago in a factory far away.

             I think we can all relate to what an old can of coffee grounds or a week old bottle of wine tastes like after it has been sitting around too long. It may have been good, even great, once… but time ages everyone and everything, sometimes for better, but usually for worse.

           Quality and Freshness are the primary goals that we at Rae&Ryan’s Gourmet Foods are looking to excel at, well besides creating new and unique flavors that will knock your socks off! We do not subscribe to the concept of compromising quality for the gains of quantity. We are not trying to make the fastest buck possible and get out before it all falls apart. We are working every day to create a brand you can trust and rely on to be the best and never compromise.

            That sounds good and well, but what does that actually mean you say? Well that means that we are as close to the source of the ingredients as possible so we know how old they are. A select few ingredients we grow ourselves here at the homestead and it doesn’t get fresher than that. The rest we source fresh/raw and organic as much as possible which gets processed and dried on-site. The ingredients we can’t grow or source fresh we source already dried from only the highest of high-quality suppliers who also believe in our philosophy of quality over quantity.

           What this means for you as the consumer is that you are guaranteed to receive product that was produced within the last month or less, often less. Some of our less common products or large volume orders are made to order and shipped within three days. When you open a vacuum-sealed pouch of seasoning from Rae&Ryan’s your nose will know that what you hold in your hand has not been sitting in a hot factory, a flatbed truck or some lonely shelf for months or years. Your taste buds will confirm that what you have is the freshest and most potent seasoning available, short of going to your Grandma’s house.

            Stale and bland food doesn’t make any more sense than carrying a dull pocket knife or walking around with your shoelaces untied. I think we can all agree that:

Life’s too Short for Flavorless Food!

~Chipotle Meco~

Simplicity is Best

Meco Chipotles are best enjoyed where the subtle nuances of flavor, the sweet maturity of the pepper, and the heavier smoke profile are given space to shine in your dish. A dry or wet marinade on the protein of your choice is best served with fresh guacamole and your preferred cheese.
