This sauce is yummy and spicy, easy to adapt and quick to put together. It can be poured over pasta or add some extra water (per recipe) and rice and cover it and leave it simmer to make a rice goulash.

  • 1 (8 ounce) package sliced mushrooms (optional)
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 4 -8 garlic cloves (to taste)

This was different then what we are use to. But I did like the smoky taste the chipotle gave this dish. Very easy to make and it makes a LOT. I boiled 2 cups of pasta for just4-5 minutes so it would be under cooked. Then I put it in the pan covered it with a lid and let is set for 5 minutes so the pasta would absorb the juices. Perfect!
