This was the first dish that I ever learned how to cook. My wife loves it. I have 3 small children so when they are eating it, I leave out the Chipotle chile. I think this originally came from either Mens Health or Mens Fitness magazine. Also it doesn't hurt to sprinkle on some shredded cheddar when you are done.
