Chipotle with Chicken and Rice?

hey there, i got ahold of some of the real chipotles, the ones that are tan/gray.



never used these, but i want to incorporate them into my baked chicken + spanish rice meal.

How would i incorporate these into my recipe?

the rice is basmati rice which i toast and simmer with spanish seasonings.

the chicken i bake at 400 degrees until tender.

i serve with heated corn tortillas.

You can rehydrate one chipotle and take off the stem (and seeds if you like), chop it up and toss it into the rice mix so they cook together.

They're pretty potent. One pepper is a good start.

You can make a marinade with the chipotle and the Spanish seasonings you will be using for the rice. Use a combination of olive oil and an acidic ingredient such as citrus juice, wine.

Been wondering, how is chipotle pronounced, may I ask? Chee-po-tel or chee-pot-lay or some other way? Thanks!

chee-pot-lay - with a long "o" in the middle. -pot- rhymes with boat.
