5 Minutes Chipotle Burrito Sauce
Posted By Savita
Sharing today, a 5-minutes magic sauce which is way more than just burrito sauce! With flavorful chipotle en adobo, earthy cumin and oregano, and healthy touch of non-fat yogurt... this sauce is my go-to condiment on a lot of fresh summer foods.
Today I'm calling is a burrito sauce... though I often serve it as dipping sauce for sweet potato fries, top on veggie burgers, and even as a creamy dressing for fresh greens salads! if I'm lucky to save this sauce from burrito or salads, I even slather some in homemade sandwiches! I don't call it a "magic sauce" for nothing!
So, I today thought, I should share this recipe with you.
I love such simple and quick recipes which can be used multiple ways. Like most of my salad vinaigrette recipes, I often use for marinating meats/chickens as well. So do you?! aww.. I though I'm the only genius here ;) lol!
On a serious note, really that's what home cooking is all about... Making most of the time and food in-hand! Isn't it?
- 1 Chipotle in Adobo (minced plus 2 teaspoon of adobo sauce)
- 1/2 Cup Sour Cream
- 1/2 Cup Yogurt (thick greek yogurt)
- 1/2 tsp Oregano (dried)
- 1/2 tsp Cumin Powder
- 1 tbsp Olive Oil
- 2-3 tbsp Lemon (juice, adjust to taste)
- 1 tsp Honey (optional)
- Salt (to taste)
Chipotle Burrito Sauce
In bowl, add all the ingredients - yogurt, sour cream, oregano, cumin, olive oil, and lemon juice.
Additional Notes:If yogurt makes sauce too thick, I add a few tbsp water to get consistency right.
- 2. Whisk well, taste and add salt as needed.
- 3. Refrigerate in tight-lid container until ready to use.
You can make sauce up to three days ahead. I make a big batch over weekend and use for weekday breakfast.
Sauce also goes great as dipping sauce with homemade sweet potato fries, or topped on veggie burgers, even as a creamy and spicy salad dressing! yumm!
