This vegetarian entree tops my list. The spicy chipotle chili powder, smoky tomatoes, and naturally sweet yams over unassuming couscous is fantastic.

NotesSpicy Advice:

Chipotle chili powder has a smoky spicy flavor found in spice section. Fire-roasted tomatoes, also in groceries, have a smoky fiery flavor. Chili powder and diced tomatoes may he substituted to save a trip to the store.

This recipe was awesome! Just made it and I used chicken stock instead of vegetable stock and ate it with grits instead of couscous. Delicious! Thanks!
