beans with chipotle adobo sauce

One night I needed to whip up a quick dinner with ingredients I already had in the house (due to a strong wish not to leave the house again to buy groceries). I found the recipe for Black Beans in Chipotle Adobo Sauce in Veganomicon, and subsituted black beans for kidney beans. The recipe is very simple but effective: the chipotle sauce is basically chili and onion whizzed up into a sauce, and it is delicious (but very spicy). As accompaniment I prepared Tomato Couscous with Capers, also from Veganomicon. It’s meant to be paired with mediterranean cuisine but I found it tasty with the bean dish.

To eat up the leftovers I used baby cos lettuce leaves in place of taco shells, to add some freshness. Also delicious.
