Ode to chipotle

I suddenly remember I still had some chipotle leftovers, so time to put them in a dish I learned from Jan Chrillesen some time ago: Pastel de Choclo (spanish).

Pastel de Choclo is a south american dish based on corn, so far all the recipes agree, after that it can be made in a variety of ways. I use the a variety with lots of beef and chicken. Oh and corn. But the best part of it, as Jan showed me, was to add some chipotle chili. The smoky flavours of the chipotle go well with the corn and the beef. So find yourself a recipe, there are plenty of them ot there, like this one, get some chipotle and enjoy!

PS: don’t forget to mash up the corn like I did this time, it won’t be a nice pie like it’s supposed to, but will still taste great.
