I make this about once a month and LOVE IT! It’s a great recipe to clear out that last bit of salsa in the fridge, that cup of leftover rice, or those cans of beans that have been in the pantry for awhile. I bought a 12 ounce jar of the adobo sauce and keep it in the fridge, so this recipe is pretty much always ready-to-go in a pinch! I love not having to go to the store for 12 random ingredients for a recipe! Great for leftover for work-week lunch over a bed of lettuce for a salad too! So versatile!

Made these for dinner tonight, LOVED THEM! Very easy to put together, and very flavorful! I will be adding them to our regular menu rotation. Warning, when it says “spicy” it isn’t joking. It’s not like burn your mouth off, but I don’t think little kids would like the heat.

So I never leave reviews.. I don’t normally take the time.. but This is amazing!! I can not eat flour tortillas because I have Celiac Disease, so I made this into a taco instead.. and it was Amazing! Loved it.. EVEN the Yogurt which I was very skeptical of but I will always make a recipe as is the first time and then make changes.. Loved the Yogurt.. Pretty sure I will Never use Sour Cream on my Tacos Again! Great Recipe.. Will def make again!!!

So delicious. I used chicken instead of beans (hubby is not a beans fan, unfortunately). I get a can of chipotles in adobo, puree it, and what ever I have left over, I put in the freezer for the next time I need chipotle peppers. Absolutely delicious. Plan on making it again tonight, as well as a less spicy version for the kids. Thanks for the recipe. We love it.

Love this recipe! Easy to make with ingredients probably already in your pantry. I make it about once a month, and will continue to do so!
