"There are two types of people; those who eat kale and those who should." -Bo Muller-Moore, Kale Guy

The refrigerator light goes on...

A simple and easy slaw that's slightly spicy and slightly sweet. Not a lot of work - but great results.

Chipotle Peppers

Chipotles are actually jalapeno chilies that have been smoked and dried. The intense flavor is spicy and has lovely undertones of smoke, chocolate and sweet peppers. If the peppers are not going to cook for very long, I will often soften them by steaming for about ten minutes.

Usually found in specialty markets (and more often now in your corner grocery store), dried chipotles are also sold packed in cans in adobo which is a spicy sauce made of vinegar, dried chili peppers, herbs and spices.
