Recipe Description

As I prepped for the challenge last night, I took stock of what was in my cupboard. It was modestly well-stocked in the grains department, but all I had in the way of my beloved legumes was a can of dark red kidney beans. Granted, they were organic Whole Foods beans (a great deal at $0.89), but I like having variety. My inward pouting stopped when I saw the little can of chipotle peppers beside it. They already seemed to like being together, so why not turn them into a dish? With a couple of other canned ingredients and some spices, this turned out to be way better than I expected it to. The best part is that it can be made by anyone; even if they’re limited in the spice department it will still be tasty and nutritious.
