Chipotle Chile Powder
Mar 16th, 2006

I'm loving the chipotle chile powder I bought in the Mexican food aisle of the Red Apple last month. It came in a little plastic bag, cost a few bucks, and is so smoky and spicy and hot!

Earlier this week I made a casserole with sauteed pattypan squash, sweet bell peppers, and red onion topped with black beans and a bit of cheese. I added some of the chipotle chile powder to the sauteed vegetables and its smokiness made them taste like they just came off the grill. Not a bad effect on a cold, rainy Seattle evening!

So next time you're in a grocery store that has a decent ethnic foods section, take a look and see if you can find some. I think come March most of us could use a little spice to perk us up.
