Fiery Chipotle Rice and Sausage

Recipe by NurseJaney

This came from a Cooking Light edition of unknown year. It is SOO good, and so easy, that it will become one of your frequent repeats, BEWARE ! 1 chipotle will likely be plenty, unless you have an asbestos tongue ! Be CERTAIN to allow the 10 minutes standing time necessary for the rice to soak up the flavorful juices,

This is from the March 2001 issue of Cooking Light and it's tasty. A second chipotle makes it very spicy.
