Spicy Black Bean Chili
Vegetarian Diet

Chipotle chiles frequently come packaged in adobo sauce (a Mexican-type red sauce) and can be very hot. They’re usually found in the Mexican or important foods section of your supermarket. Substitute ¼ teaspoon of ground pepper for the chipotle (for a total of ½ teaspoon) if you want a milder version. For deeper flavor, chop plenty of cilantro stems and leaves for your final topping.

Serves 4, 1½ cups each.
