      Used chipotles instead of chilis. My husband and I loved this. Too hot for my son. Great complexity of flavor for a relatively simple dish to prepare. The cilantro and avocado topping were a great addition. Superb meatless dish. Bravo!

      Loved this super yummy stew!! I used chipotle peppers instead of the red chili and it turned out great. I did add a bit extra broth as I needed to use it up and my veggies were abnormally large. I had mine with avocado and cilantro and crumbled some tortilla chips on top, loved it!!

      This recipe is awesome. I was very skeptical while making it because it didn't seem to have much of a "base", but it turned out fantastic!!! The flavors are so complex! Even my non-veg hubby went back for seconds. Thanks!
