It was actually a friend of mine whom is Mexican that introduced me to some of the wonders of cooking with chipotles and now I can’t get enough. This particular chipotle recipe is a bit of a favourite of mine as 1. it has chipotles in it! 2. it involves seafood! and 3. I like serving it with rice so I can make a decent fried rice the next day with the leftovers ūüôā
