Just stumbled upon this site - the recipes are inspiring!
And what's to go wrong with a combination or green beans, tomatoes, and (my fave) chipotles!
But - I can't seem to find "chipotles" in the ingredient list (and in instructions)
Am I missing them - or could you please add?
There's always an open can of chipotles in adobo sauce in my refrigerator - thanks for the recipe!
