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

These look delish
I love your blog. I love the mexican cuisine, but its been basterdized here in Sydney. I cannot get a decent burrito here. I had the most amazing mexican meal in Manhattan though. these frijoles look scrumptious.
Do you know of any Mexican cookbooks that you can recommend?
So simple and so delicious~ We have a few great bean dishes in our cuisine too but it is nice to change sometimes and this is a good one to do it with~ love the tostada and the crispiness against the creaminess of the beans
Carolyn Jung says
That sounds pretty irresistible to me. Bet this would be great in a quesadilla, too.

I didn’t know you could keep chipotles in the freezer! How very clever and helpful. 🙂
