For a little less spice, leave out the chipotle chile. To fire it up, use 2 or 3 chiles.
Spanish rice, a green salad tossed with slices of jicama in a ranch dressing, warm flour tortillas and corn on the cob create a menu with southwestern flair.

Chipotle chiles are dried jalapeño chiles with a wonderful sweet and smoky flavor. Look for them packed in spicy adobo sauce or dried.
