Chipotle Sauce – A Beautiful Mess


I had a friend in college who introduced me to canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, which was an ingredient I had largely overlooked previously at the grocery store. Over time it became a pantry staple as I love them stirred into soup recipes or for spicing up dips. Plus, this ingredient takes center stage in this chipotle sauce recipe.

This chipotle sauce has only 5 ingredients and takes literally minutes to make. While simple, it’s very flavorful and spicy and will add a lot of interest to any dish you add it to. I love this chipotle sauce drizzled inside or on top of quesadillas (or a grilled cheese sandwich), on tacos, on fajitas, on a burrito bowl, mixed into chili or you can use it almost like a dip for nachos or French fries.

Ingredients

  • Chipotle peppers in adobo
  • Sour cream
  • Mayo
  • Cilantro
  • Honey

You may also want to season with a little salt and pepper.

Directions

Add all the ingredients to a food processor. Puree. I like to leave this sauce a little chunky, but you can puree until completely smooth if you prefer.

I like this sauce on a thicker side, almost a spread or thin dip. But if you want to thin this sauce more, add a few tablespoons of water as you begin to puree. Add more (a few tablespoons at a time) until you get the consistency you are looking for.

Store any leftover sauce in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

Tips & Substitutions

  • You can substitute plain Greek yogurt for the sour cream.
  • You can substitute brown sugar for the honey if you prefer.
  • I think this sauce is plenty spicy (heat) as is, but if you want to add more try adding 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne or more.
  • If you don’t have a food processor, a blender can work for this recipe, or even an immersion blender and a mixing bowl.
