5 Minutes Chipotle Burrito Sauce

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?

This Chipotle Burrito Sauce is also such a powe...

Notes: Recipe doubles easily


    Chipotle Burrito Sauce

  • 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)


  • 1. 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.

Savita's Notes:

Make Ahead

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!
