Homemade Chipotle Sauce

spicy, smoky robust chipotle sauce perfect for any taco or marinate

This dressing or topping is packed with spicy, savory flavors and ridiculously easy to make. I used chipotle peppers submerged in adobo sauce as the dominant flavor in this condiment. Chipotles are small peppers, most often times jalapeños, that have been dried by a smoking process that provides their rich dark color and distinct smoky flavor. Instead of mayonnaise making the base of this sauce, low-fat sour cream was used here along with protein and nutrient rich greek yogurt. Oftentimes greek yogurt alone has a very distinct tart flavor that is off putting for those that are not used to it, so the combination of it with the sour cream tones it down along with adding many gut-healthy probiotic cultures.

Homemade Chipotle Sauce

Ingredients:

½ cup sour cream
½ cup greek yogurt
½ cup cilantro, packed
½ lime, juice and zest
1 chipotle pepper submerged in adobo sauce (can use canned varieties)
1 tbsp adobo sauce (from the same can)
¼ tsp cumin
Salt to taste

Directions:

  1. Add all ingredients in a food processor and blend well until smooth. If too thick and not your desired consistency add 1 tbsp of water at a time and adjust for seasonings.
  2. Keep any leftover sauce in the fridge for up to two weeks. Enjoy!
