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.
