Makes an excellent vegetarian meal, side dish, or packed lunch. Delicious warm or cold. Keeps well for a couple of days.

See image for canned chipotle pepper reference. *if you’re curious just how spicy these are, touch one with your knife and taste it. But don’t be scared. This is what gives the recipe the delicious smokey flavour. If you like heat, add more! There is some onion and a little juice. I usually add a little of that for more smoke flavour.
