Overall, this was a pretty yummy meal. I think that I would actually increase the chipotle pepper after I take the beans out for the kiddos. I know my spice isn't very old and I wanted to taste it a bit more.
We generally have all these ingredients on hand (or things that are easily done without or substituted) so this makes a cheap and easy meal for us. Even my husband who is sometimes apprehensive about our meatless meals thought this was pretty good and was up for eating it again. YAY!!
