Chipotle Sour Cream and Salsa
Oh, how I love chipotle peppers in adobo sauce!
I was planning on black bean and cheese tacos for dinner one night (recipe to come) and came across Sweet Caroline's Cooking adobo sour cream. I thought it would go perfectly with the tacos.
But why stop there? I threw together a chipotle salsa to go with it.
Heaven in a taco shell, I tell you!
