We really enjoyed this recipe. As each chipotle can have its own level of heat, I would recommend testing before adding the additional pepper flakes. In my case, one chipotle was mild, the other was 5 alarm (both coming from the same can) so I omitted the additional chili flakes. I served this as a side to fajitas, and the leftovers made a perfect burrito filling the next day. Thank you Impera Magna for sharing the recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Saute onion and garlic for 5 minutes or until onion is tender and lightly browned.
  2. Add remaining ingredients; reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes, uncovered.
  3. Serve topped with crumbled Mexican Cheese, Queso Blanco, and sliced green onion or maybe even a dollop of Pico de Gallo.
  4. NOTE: If you prefer the beans to be milder, saute some chopped bell pepper with the onion and garlic and leave out the red pepper flakes; the Chipotle Peppers add a little heat, but also some yummy smokiness.
