A quick dinner, perfect for Lenten meals and just plain delicious frijoles adobados. Frijoles de olla refried with chipotle chiles in adobo sauce add a spicy kick to your tostadas.
Chipotle chiles in adobo ~ Smoked jalapenos are pickled in tomato puree, vinegar, garlic, bay leaves, paprika, salt, onions and oregano.
If heat is an issue, use only the sauce for a tamer kick. Love heat? Add more chipotles. Freeze leftover chiles in a plastic bag. When a recipe calls for chipotles slice off as needed. Puree chipotles with mayo for a colorful sandwich spread or add to your potato salad for a Mexican twist. Enjoy! Sweet Life
