Chipotle peppers are smoked jalapenos. They're very different from regular jalapenos, and they're quite delicious. Look for them, canned in adobo sauce, in the Mexican foods section of big grocery stores. Since you're unlikely to use the whole can at once, you'll be happy to know that you can store your chipotles in the freezer, where they'll live happily for months and stay pliable enough that you can peel one off when you want to use it. Queso quesadilla is a mild, white Mexican cheese. Monterey Jack is an acceptable substitute.
