We can see the Aztec Gods providing food, and a Mexican woman rolling her Corn Dough. Ancient Aztecs had developed the process of Nixtamalization, which helps them to compensate with deficiency in free niacin, a key ingredient for their (and our) survival. Amazing how advanced their civilization was !!

What are Chipotle Peppers ?

If you don't know

Chipotlé

, just remember it's the same pepper as Jalapeño, dried and smoked

Though it's not as hot as the green Jalapeño, you need to add only a little bit...

... unless you are interested in traveling to the moon without a SpaceX rocket

You will find Chipotle easily in America, but not so easily in European markets

But if you can't find any, Internet can come to the rescue : To purchase online, see HERE
