 NOTES : This is a very tasty casserole that even kids will enjoy if you remove
the Chipotles.	You can add half the amount of chipotles to half of the mixture
and cook in two separate casseroles.   Baking time may be slighlty lees.   This
way you can enjoy the full flavour of the dish and get your kids to eat zucchini
without them even knowing it.
