The recipe calls for partially cooked brown rice. If you have fully cooked Brown Rice in your freezer, it works just as well, simply let the beans cook for 30 minutes in step 4 before adding it to the pot.
If you prefer your food less spicy, substitute the dried chipotle pepper for 1 teaspoon of sweet smoked paprika. Add it to the veggies at the end of step 3 when you add the salt. Cook for a minute before adding the peas.
