A hint of Mexico or Peru leaps out of this delicious dish. With the combination of hot chipotle mellowed by cocoa and a creamy nut butter—the blend of flavors is superb. We’ve spooned the sauce over squash, but any root vegetable would honor it with equally delicious results. Top it up with what we’ve suggested, or jazz it up with diced fresh tomatoes, dollops of Mexican crema, and toasted pepitas.
Double up on the Smoky Rich Tomato Sauce recipe and freeze in smaller containers. It’s delicious served over pasta or rice.
