How can you not know CHIPOTLE?

That's chi-pot-le (chə-pōt'lā) , Aaron!


Not "chipotay."

Perhaps you just forgot that chipotle peppers are dried and smoked jalapeños—that's fine. Maybe you were on the spot and it slipped your mind.

But that pronunciation is unforgivable.

Haven't I already blogged enough about my almost-weekly guility pleasure of CHIPOTLE (Vegetarian burrito bol, peppers, hot salsa, corn, no cheese, lettuce and extra guacamole)??? Actually that's not very "guilty" of a pleasure. It's practically an Ellie Krieger... well, if I divide it into 4 separate portions enclosed neatly in ziploc bags or something. But who has the time for that?

You're on warning, Aaron! =)

Yeah I thought that was pretty lame too. especially since it seems like chipotle peppers fit so nicely into his "culinary point of view".

Even if it's not about food knowledge, how would he put something he doesn't know into his dishes? Because he knows it's spicy?

Even Martin caught this flub...and if Martin caught it, it must of been BIG. :) Oh, Aaron. You better cut that extra guac outta that "bol." Even though the avocados are good for you they're high in the F-A-T...oh, but it's good fat. So RayRay would advise to keep spreading it on. ;)

He'd certainly be in the minority of Americans if he DID pronounce it correctly. Even Food Network chefs don't pronounce it correctly; most people give it an extra "l", saying "chi-POLT-lay." It's right up there with "mascarpone" and "turmeric" in terms of most common pronounciation boo-boos.

Leave Paula alone! It's an accent people, she's not stupid. The woman has a freakin enterprise. She's practically the south's Martha Stewart.

I say cut him slack. Ok, he butchered chipotle. Glad he didn't attempt adobo then.

You should know that when cooking at a hospital, you can even use salt or pepper because of the sodium cops, so is it that surprising the dude didn't know what a smoked jalapeno was called?

Seems like some Anti Paula sentiment is out there. Boy can I ever relate to that. Glad I have a job so I don't have to watch the lump when she gets her daytime snorefest going.

As a born and bred Southerner I can say that Paula Deen is NOT the Martha Stewart of the South...She is what we've always called Poor White Trash that got lucky...As for the accent I come from a very long line of Southerners in the VERY Deep South and not one of us pronounces the word spatula as SPATCHLER...Nor do we utter Y'ALL every third syllable...She's nasty White Trash....Actually ,I think that she would make a GREAT whorehouse Madam...She certainly exhibits the demeanor and aptitude for that position !

Feel bad for Aaron, but he should know better!!!

Re. Paula- a little of her goes a LONG way! Cannot stand the over done "Southern" bit.

She is getting more and more harsh by the minute.

I read somewhere that the pepper pronunciation comment was an editing thing...aaron and bobby flay were bantering back and forth and some things were edited out making it appear that his answer was serious, rather than just b.s.

Paula is a phoney. It's all part of the act/brand now. Help us all.

All I can say is I am so glad they kicked Shane off. I mean, he probably would have no idea how to pronounce, or know the definition of a Chipotle pepper.

At least Paula can cook and knows what ingredients go well with butter. She has made several Chipotle compound butters and mayos. Then again, I guess that's why she didn't have to go through this lame part of the FN machine to get her job.

The guy is trying to become a food network star. No excuses for not knowing what a chipotle is. Ok, he cooks in a hospital, but does he ever, I don't know, eat at Subway? Has he ever made one of Bobby Flay's recipes? Wow.

Speaking of peppers and food knowledge, I'm watching "Cooking for Real" right now and Sunny Anderson just used the words scotch bonnet and habanero interchangeably. It was too fast to see which one it actually was. it wasn't just in passing either, she stopped cooking, held it up and said "this is a habanero, also known as a scotch bonnet" (or something like that) as part of a "teaching segment" that everyone is trying to include now. I understand they are similar, but still. You would think someone would have caught this before it went on air. I guess once you have the job nobody is watching as closely. Bobby Flay probably just threw something at his television...

I would swear Aaron was gay. Anyone else think so? His mannerisms scream gay. NOT that there's anything WRONG with that!!!!

There are a few other people on FN who cannot pronounce chipotle. As a Spanish speaker, it's a little funny. However, I am suprised that southwestern chef Bobby Flay mispronounces it, too ("chiPOtalay"). Anyway, it doesn't matter to me. He's so damn cute.
