Chipotle sauce [vegan] – Contentment cooking

It’s made with pantry staples like vegan sour cream, mayonnaise, lime juice, and of course chipotle peppers in an adobo sauce. Everything comes together in under 10 minutes and will impress even the pickiest eaters.

Why this is the best homemade chipotle sauce recipe

Friends, here’s what really sets my chipotle sauce apart from other sauces and what really takes it from great tasting to the truly amazing tasting you always know:

Roasted garlic: I simply heat some olive oil and add a few cloves of garlic for a short while until it smells nice and is golden brown. It really makes a difference, everything is fine.

brown sugar: adds such a delicious taste and contrast to the heat. You can of course use another sugar or maple syrup, but I find brown sugar tastes better.

Creamy texture: as you can see in my step by step pictures it’s a really rich, luxurious sauce that tastes so delicious with almost everything, yes.

Tips and tricks

You won’t use whole chipotle peppers in adobo sauce because they are spicy and very flavorful. If you don’t know what to do with leftovers (you can make more sauce or chili 😋😊) freeze them and they will last 3 months.

To do this: transfer the leftovers to a freezer-safe container, so you can use them whenever you want.

You can also use 2 shortened ingredients, if you’re really short on time.

Use chipotle powder instead of peppers in adobo sauce: I would start with 2 teaspoons and see if you like it hot.

You can press the garlic directly into the sauce, then combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
