Great beef and bean dish for the crock-pot. Goes over well at potluck parties. The chipotle peppers in adobo sauce add a nice background flavor. I found this recipe in one of the many crock-pot cookbooks my husband has. A tip for using chipotle peppers in adobo sauce: open the can, de-seed the peppers and put them, and the sauce, in a food processor. Process and store in the refrigerator for easy use in any dish you'd like.
