Stuffed Sweet Potato with Chipotle Black Bean and Corn Salad

Did you know a chipotle is a smoke-dried jalapeño?

The word chipotle comes from the Nahuatl word chilpoctli which means smoked chili.  The people’s who lived in Mexico before the Aztec civilization are thought to have invented it.

The jalapeño chili is used in Mexican-inspired cuisines, such as Mexican-American, Tex-Mex, and southwestern dishes from New Mexico.

Jalapeños come in different varieties, sizes and heat or spiciness.

The chili loses a little of its heat through the smoking process, and many enjoy both its spiciness and the natural wood smoke taste that accompanies it.

The chipotle now enjoys a broad range of uses throughout the USA and Canada.

This recipe is a southwestern USA inspired delight.
