Spicy chipotle peppers blended together with greek yogurt and creamy avocados. My favorite chipotle sauce for tacos, salad or to dip veggies in. Gluten-free.
I’m SO excited to share this avocado chipotle sauce recipe with you.
Really, I am!
Mainly, because it’s really hard to get a reaction out of my fiance. Even if it’s his favorite food, he’s too busy inhaling what’s on his plate to really say anything about the food. When I first made this sauce and put it on his taco salad instead of just sour cream, he stopped eating and said, “Wow, this is the best sauce!” Then he dove back into his bowl and I didn’t hear anything else out of him until he was done eating dinner and started looking for dessert.
Except, his one small comment really told me that I had a great recipe on my hands!
Avocado Chipotle Sauce
I’ve tried it a few different ways and adding the avocado really gives it an extra layer of creaminess that’s different than the creamy flavor of the greek yogurt. It’s super smoky, creamy and spicy all at the same time! Plus, it’s simple to make, my NutriBullet did all the work for me, and it’s ready in less than 5 minutes!
When I say it’s spicy, I’m not kidding, it’s REALLY spicy. You don’t taste it at first but it kicks in right when you swallow and then it tingles all the way down.
Just how I like it.
I definitely wouldn’t make this for kids but if you like spice, then this avocado chipotle sauce is for you! It’s so good drizzled over tacos, salad, as a spread for veggies burgers, or as a dip for fries, veggies, egg rolls or taquitos, or even sandwich spread. The possibilities are endless!
Clearly, the star of my avocado chipotle sauce, are the chipotle peppers!
You can use chipotle pepper paste or you can get canned whole chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. Either will be fine, I used the canned peppers for this sauce. I just blended them up in my NutriBullet blender. I really love that you can see the tiny red and green flecks from the cilantro and the peppers in the sauce.
- 1 cup Greek yogurt (or you can use sour cream)
- ¼ cup cilantro
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 1 clove garlic
- ¼ cup chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
- ½ avocado
- NOTE - If it's too spicy for you, add another ½ cup of greek yogurt to mellow it out or reduce the amount of peppers you add.
- Add the chipotle peppers, cilantro, lemon juice, garlic, greek yogurt, and avocado to the food processor.
- Blend until very smooth, you don't want any big chunks of the peppers left.
- Note - I didn't add any additional salt because the canned peppers already have salt in them so for me, it was enough.
- Note - If you're using chipotle paste, start with 1 T and add more if you like.
Fellow spice lovers of the world, get ready to have your socks blown off, this avocado chipotle sauce really takes it to the next level! Make sure you have a glass of water nearby! Just in case.
