You'll never go back to the store-bought chipotle sauce after trying this homemade version. We love to serve this with any type of taco or as a dipping sauce for burritos, chips, fries, or drizzle over nachos and salads.
Why Choose This Chipotle Recipe? O.o
- You only need 5 minutes and a blender.
- It's a little creamy, incredibly spicy, and has smokey undertones (yup, that's my kind of sauce).
- A very forgiving recipe that is simple to adapt. For example, you can make it more creamy and less spicy. See the tips section for further information on how to accomplish it.
- This sauce can be used as a dipping or topping sauce. See the serving ideas below.
- Because of its robust flavors, it may transform a mundane dinner into something wonderful and mouthwatering.
Prep Time: 10 mins
Total Time: 10 mins
Servings: 10 servings
- 1/4 cup mayo
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 clove garlic
- 2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
- 1/2 lime, juiced
- salt to taste
- Combine the mayo, sour cream, chipotle peppers, lime juice, garlic, and a bit of salt in a food processor.
- Process the sauce until it is smooth and creamy.
- Taste to see if any extra lime juice or salt is required.
- Make it less hot and more creamy.
- Instead of using the entire can of chipotle chiles. Simply use 2-3 peppers and a little adobo sauce. Your chipotle sauce will be lighter in color than mine.
- To drizzle over salads or bowls, adjust the dressing consistency. Adjust with a little water as necessary. However, if you thin it too much, the flavors will be diluted.
- It can be stored in an airtight jar in the refrigerator for up to 3 months.
Ideas for Serving
- Serve with tacos (such as potato tacos), tostadas, or quesadillas.
- Serve with burritos, sweet potato fries, potato wedges, zucchini fries, or simply dip your tortilla chips in it.
- Make a dressing and drizzle it over the nachos, burrito bowls, or salads.
- Keep the consistency thick and spread it on your burgers and sandwiches.
