1. Chipotle Chicken Chowder with Corn, Bacon, and Potatoes

The important factor to considering when making a chowder is the balance of flavors. We’ve achieved a stellar combination in our chicken version by using a touch of chipotle en adobo for an underlying smoky warmth, some fresh corn for sweetness, and bacon for, well, bacon-y goodness! The meal comes together quickly and the pieces of chicken and baby red potatoes make it super satisfying. Cook, relax, and enjoy!

2. Chipotle Shrimp Tostadas with Black Beans and Lime Yogurt

Tostadas—toasted tortillas—are usually deep fried. We cooked ours in a lot less oil, but just enough to get that same golden crispiness. These get topped with adobo-marinated shrimp and a refreshing bean salad. We whipped up a quick lime yogurt to spread on the warm tortillas for a thin layer of creaminess and to help the toppers stick to the crunchy base. Cook, relax and enjoy!

3. Chipotle Meatball Tacos with Tangy Slaw

We have a theory that you can put anything—like meatballs—inside a tortilla and it’ll be instantly delicious. These meatballs get flavored with chipotle chile for a smoky depth. As a smart cooking technique, we mixed in chopped tortillas in place of breadcrumbs to bind the meat together. A simple slaw of cabbage, cilantro leaves, onion, and lime juice makes the perfect tangy topping. Cook, relax, and enjoy!

4. Chipotle Shrimp Tortilla Soup with Corn and Cilantro

It’s hard to believe that you can create such an incredibly flavorful starter in 30 minutes, but you truly can with our dynamite shrimp and tortilla soup. Packed with shrimp and sweet corn, seasoned with a touch of smoky chipotle in adobo, and topped with crunchy toasted tortilla strips, it's sure to get your taste buds dancing. Cook, relax, and enjoy!

5. Chipotle Spiced Steak with Potato Salad & Charred Snap Peas

A chipotle chili powder rub adds a smoky note to a classic summertime steak dish, but the charred scallion butter really takes it over the top. We took our potato salad cues from Germany, with a simple mustard, vinegar, and oil-based dressing, but with a pop of snap pea sweetness and crunch. This is summer on a plate! Cook, relax, and enjoy!
