why are chipotles so much hotter than jalepenos?

missmasala | Dec 16, 200408:10 PM

as i was opening a can of chipotles in adobo this evening i started wondering. i thought chipotles were smoked jalepenos. i never find jalepenos that hot. so how come i find chipotles in adobo so incendiary? is it the adobo sauce?

can any chowhounds shed some light on this?
