Smoky and spicy, this aromatic chipotle lentil stew is packed with flavor. Paired with roti, it makes for a filling dinner. And, this chipotle lentil stew is also thick enough to enjoy as a dip with veggie crudités and crackers.
My daughter and I love this chipotle lentil stew as it is:
✅ so incredibly tasty. It is packed with layers of intense flavor from the coriander, smoked paprika, turmeric, garlic, ginger, and chipotle peppers in adobo sauce.
✅ so versatile: it can masquerade as a thick and filling stew as well as a delicious dip. If you like, you can add in an additional cup and a half of water to thin this stew out into a soup.
✅ healthy. With inflammation-fighting turmeric and no dairy or added sugar in it, it packs a heavy nutritional punch.
✅ so easy to make. Just add everything to an Instant Pot, sauté for ten minutes and set it and forget it for another 15 minutes and boom- dinner is ready!
✅ made with only 10 pantry staple ingredients!
