Chipotle Roasted Cauliflower

I liked the cauliflower I roasted a little while ago that I decided it was time for another take on it.  The beauty of roasting vegetables in the winter is that it helps heighten their flavors, and if you want to go the extra step, you can roast a full head of cauliflower and use half of it as a mash or soup.
