Most chili chipotles are produced in Chihuahua, a northern Mexican state where they go by the name morita. The Aztecs used to smoke-dry jalapeos to preserve them, along with many other types of foods, so that they could be stored without spoiling. Smoke-drying prevented the jalapeos from rotting before they had a chance to dry in the sun and also added flavor to the peppers.
