This recipe was in the Sunday paper in an article about foods for different astrological signs. I haven't tried it but it does sound interesting. For the curious, this is supposed to be for the sign Aquarius, who are into "offbeat, multicultural takes." Notes: puree chipotles with a little of the adobo sauce. If preferred, bake cheesecake in a graham cracker crust. To sweeten cheesecake, substitute bittersweet or semi-sweet chocolate or garnish with whipped cream.
