 If you are looking for a way to make a creamy, smoky, and tangy sauce with a lot of flavors, chipotle is the answer. It is an easy and good way to make a sauce recipe that pairs with almost everything you eat.

 This easy Chipotle Sauce Recipe is shockingly quick to make, and you just need only 5 minutes. The ingredients that you need are simple to find in our kitchens.

    Ingredients :

  • 1 cup sour cream.
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise.
  • 2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce.
  • 3 tablespoons chopped cilantro.
  • freshly squeezed juice of 1/2 lime.

 Sour cream adds an extra creaminess and a slight tanginess to this recipe, you can also use Greek yogurt in case it is a little difficult to get sour cream. Add all of the ingredients to a blender or food processor and blend until the mixture is homogenous. Serve right away or store refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 4 days.

 By the way, adobo sauce is mainly composed of ingredients such as chili powder, tomatoes, vinegar, garlic, peppercorns, cumin… and the list goes on. If you can’t find chipotle peppers, a dried and ground version works in a pinch! Just keep in mind that one dried chipotle pepper is equivalent to 1/2 teaspoon of chipotle powder. If you feel that’s not enough, you can always add a bit more and blend again.

 Currently, Chipotles in adobo are something that Mexicans don’t actually make themselves because good quality ones are found everywhere, so there’s hardly a reason to make it, like for example mustard or mayonnaise.
