Chipotle Sauce Recipe

Chipotle Sauce Recipe will take you 5 minutes to prepare and you can enjoy it right away on your favorite salad. This sauce is a staple in our house, its incredibly creamy and flavorful with just the right amount of spiciness. Packed with fresh cilantro, the Chipotle Sauce is also refreshing. For a more citrusy flavor, you can go ahead and add some lime zest to it.

I like to pour it over Chicken Lettuce Wraps,  use it as a delicious sauce for homemade IP Chicken Wings, or simply use as a dipping sauce for Roasted Potatoes. You can make a double batch from the start, as it can be refrigerated for up to 1 month. You can also replace the pesto in this Chicken Kabobs Recipe and make Chipotle Chicken Kabobs.

Tips and Tricks to make the perfect Chipotle Sauce Recipe:

  • When making mayo based sauce I recommend using full fat mayo, you can totally make a “skinnier” version by using Fat Free Mayo, but please be aware that the sauce will be a bit more watery.
  • You can use either sour cream or whole milk greek yogurt. I like both options, but prefer the sour cream as it adds a bit more tanginess to the sauce.
  • Using fresh cilantro is key, please don’t try to substitute, the fresher the better. Make sure your cilantro is washed and towel dried.
  • You can adjust the spiciness as you please by adding more or less chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. I usually add 2, but if you like the sauce extra spicy add more. The more peppers and sauce you add, the spicier the sauce will get and also the color will be more red.
  • The cumin and coriander compliment the sauce nicely, you can also add a little fresh lime zest for a more citrusy and refreshing flavor.
  • If you want to customize the sauce even more, a few garlic cloves will add a nice punch of flavor too.

  • Chipotle Pepper
  • Mayonnaise
  • Whole Milk Greek Yogurt
  • Cilantro, Cumin and Ground Coriander
  • Lime Zest – Optional*

How to make lime zest?

Follow these easy steps below:

  • Rinse the lime.
  • Set your tool over a cutting board. A microplane produces a very fine zest, perfect for baking and cooking. If you don’t have a microplane, use the smallest holes on an ordinary grater.
  • Grate the green skin of the lime only. Grate just enough to get through the green skin, this way you can avoid the bitter white pith underneath.
  • Rotate the lime and repeat. Once the white pith is exposed, rotate the lime and zest the next strip of peel. Repeat until most of the peel is removed, or until you have enough zest for your recipe.
