Recipe by Um Safia

Published for ZWT III. Another wonderful recipe which is simple to make and delicious....If you don't have a 'chipotle chile en adobo' the use a regular red jalapeno and 1/2tsp of smoked paprika.

Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup. We were divided on this one ~ DH & DD thought it was good and I didn't care for it. I like all the ingredients, but just didn't care for them in this combination.
