Chipotle (not the pepper) pronuciation...

Scooter Pie | Dec 17, 2002 10:45 PM

I am referring to the McDonald's owned "Mexican" chain, not the pepper, which I know is pronounced chi-POHT-lay

People I work with are Anglicizing the name of the restaurant, calling it "Chi-PO-dul"

Did the company Anglicize the pronunciation to make it easier for the masses to say? In other words, are my co-workers right in their incorrect pronunciation?

Thanks for clearing up this very important question.
