If you hadn’t noticed, I kind of have a thing for the flavor of chipotle. You’ll find it in these recipes for Chipotle Lime Chicken Fajita Skewers, Chipotle Stout Chili, Chipotle Pulled Pork Dip & Chipotle Honey Glazed Salmon Tacos, just 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!

Place in an oven-safe baking dish or in the crock pot.

I served mine over cilantro lime rice. You could also serve it over quinoa, cilantro lime cauliflower rice, wrap it up in a tortilla, or simply serve it by itself. No matter how you serve it, you’re going to love it!
