This recipe is delicious and definitely brings the heat! It’s quick to prepare and the ingredients are fairly cheap.

I served this dish on a bed of minute rice and sauteed some zucchini but it will pair well with any grain or vegetable!

    I am definitely not the worlds best cook but I followed this recipe and it turned out amazing! I didn’t think I’d be able to find chipotle peppers in adobo sauce at my local grocery store because I’ve never even heard of it but I did! This is now a house favorite and I’ll be keeping this recipe for future meals. I love how easy Carly’s meals are to follow and can be done without needing a bunch of things your average person wouldn’t have in their kitchen.
