Spice Is Nice

Credit chipotles with opening operators’ and consumers’ minds to the versatility of chiles. And with chipotles’ smoky heat now a flavor mainstay on restaurant menus, operators are exploring other ways they can use chiles to enliven menu items. Not necessarily going after diners who seek extreme heat, operators instead are employing chiles to add flavor complexity and a hit of heat rather than five-alarm fire. Chiles also are a valuable menu-item addition from a health standpoint; they can pack a lot of distinctive flavor into a small, low-calorie, low-salt package. The results of operators’ chile experimentation are bold new menu items that offer spicy twists on familiar fare.*
