I'm not sure what I think about the adobo flavor... however it's the only real seasoning. Red peppere, Thai chili sauce and a couple of tablespoons of peanut butter were the only things that saved this for me. Not sure if I'd make it again...
Chipotle-Orange Broccoli & Tofu
From EatingWell: September/October 2012
Chipotle peppers add kick to this tofu and broccoli stir-fry recipe. If you’re shy about spice, cut back on the amount or leave them out completely. Serve over brown basmati rice.

I read the reviews, so in order to add a bit more robustness, I used naked orange-mango juice, and some soy sauce for body. I also halved the recipe, but kept the chipotle part the same. Overall? It's pleasant, yes, but certainly nothing to write home about. The orange(-mango) flavor is quite mild, as is the spice. Maybe if the stir-fry had included some actual oranges? Also, if you like spice, I would recommend at least one diced chipotle peppers for every serving your recipe is making.
Recipe would benefit from more depth of flavor. A dash of soy sauce at the beginning. An Asian sauce to finish. I will make this again but I will add some additional flavors.
While I loved the idea of this recipe, the final product was missing something. I will make this again, but will create a sauce with soy sauce, adobo chilis and maybe cornstarch to give it some oomph. More like a beginning to what could be a fantastic dish.
What's great about this easy recipe is you can adjust the spice level and the orange flavor as you go depending on your taste. This is a recipe I will definitely make again!
