Does the hot sauce need to be refrigerated?
Our hot sauces are all natural and preservative free, and therefore need to be stored properly. They do not require refrigeration, but need to be kept in a cool, dark place that is 72*F or less.
What is chipotle meco?
The two main types of chipotle chilis, “Morita” and “Meco”, are both smoked red ripe jalapeños. The Meco chilis are left on the bush even longer than those picked as red jalapeños to be sold at markets. Once the peppers start losing their moisture they are harvested to become “Meco” chipotles.
The Chipotle Meco (also known as Chile “Meco” or Chipotle Tipico) is grayish-tan, quite stiff, and often described as looking like a cigar butt. “Meco” chipotles are smoked for about twice as long as “Moritas” which gives them a more intense, rich flavor.
