This salsa is chunky, but loose enough to scoop with tortilla chips. Picante, but not eyeball-popping hot. Tart, smoky and vaguely sweet, too; the chile morita has a touch of sweetness to go with the heat.
A morita chile may sound exotic, but it's just a smoked jalapeño, much like a chipotle but smaller and more fiery. The morita is red, as are chipotles. And if you're wondering why they are red when jalapeños are commonly green, it's because if a jalapeño is left on the vine long enough it will eventually turn red, much like tomatoes start out green and then turn red.
