Ok, so I was in the mood for something southwestern, and I assembled a bunch of typical ingredients. But those canned chipotles in adobo are kind of expensive, and I wanted to make sure I was gonna get the best use out of them. Here's the ingredients I have - should I go with some kind of country ribs with a black bean dip, chicken with sauce, or southwestern black bean egg rolls with some kind of dip? Where would the best use of the ancho be... the rolls, the chicken, the ribs, or the sauces or dips? I do want some kind of cream sauce for something. I realize this is a little vague, but could you all point me in the direction of some good recipes or combinations? Thanks.

Black Beans
Lime Juice
Cilantro
Sour Cream
Chipotles in Adobo
Cumin, garlic, assorted other spices
Country Style Ribs
Chicken thighs
Canned diced tomatoes
onions, peppers, corn, etc.

And I am more than willing to pick up extra ingredients if necessary - orange juice, avocado, jalapenos, etc.
