Consider this hearty salad a flavor grenade: zesty citrus, earthy chickpeas, and spicy chiles. And it all gets easily dumped into a bowl and sprinkled with queso fresco, a crumbly, not-as-salty-as-feta Mexican cheese. You’ll likely have leftover chipotles. Finely chop the chiles, mix with the adobo sauce, and refrigerate for up to 3 weeks or freeze in tablespoon-size portions.
