A WHOLE+SOME all time favourite has to be the 'La Morena Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce'. It's distinct smokey flavour is sure to have you hooked, just like us!  We absolutely love using it in this recipe - we cook it using our Black Eyed Beans and Black Turtle Beans as it makes for the best textured, smokey beans you'll ever have! Enjoy on it's own served with some coconut yoghurt, guacamole and coriander or in burritos, tacos or nachos.
