Comments on this Recipe

I make this every other week!!! I have also used other peppers instead. Just a wonderful!!!

The best.

This dish is simple & awesome! Very, very tasty.

Does anyone know where to buy musrooms grown vegan or humane?

Great dish. Lots of flavor and spice. A definate repeat in our house.

Excellent. Definitely a repeat recipe. My family raved!

Most chipotle in adobe sauce cans I find have wheat flour in them which makes them not gluten-free. Are you using a specific brand that is gluten-free?

This was wonderful, I will definitely make it again. Very spicy but I may have used too much chipotle, but we like spicy, so it was great!
