There’s nothing I love more than a delicious slow cooked one pot meal that’s super easy to make and super healthy… which is why I’m totally obsessed with this new dish!

Vegan Chipotle Sweet Potato Casserole

I combined tons of veggies with the delicious flavor of Que Pasa’s new Chipotle Salsa for a gluten free & vegan recipe that is super scrumptious!

Gluten Free Mexican Sweet Potato Casserole

If you’re not familiar with Que Pasa, it’s a Nature’s Path brand (which means everything is certified organic & gluten free!) that makes delicious chips and salsas!

I was introduced to the new line of products at the Natural Products Expo this spring and immediately fell in love with all of them, but went absolutely crazy for this chipotle salsa!

If you hadn’t noticed, I kind of have a thing for the flavor of chipotle… see Chipotle Lime Chicken Fajita Skewers, Chipotle Stout Chili, Chipotle Pulled Pork Dip & Chipotle Honey Glazed Salmon Tacos (to name a few!)

I thought it was about time I added a vegetarian (and vegan!) recipe to my ongoing list of chipotle flavored recipes, which is what I bring you today!
