Skinny chipotle sauce is perfect in sandwiches, on salads, or as a dip. It’s ready in under 5 minutes and is lightened up with just 26 calories per serving! After sharing my chipotle sauce a few years back, I’ve received many requested for a skinnier healthier version so here it is! This chipotle sauce is even easier to make and is ready in under 5 minutes. I’ve replaced the mayo with plain yogurt and doubled the cilantro because I just can’t get enough of it!
I like to use chipotle sauce in sandwiches, on salads, as a dip, or in seafood. The possibilities are endless! This sauce will last for up to 2 weeks in the fridge, assuming you haven’t finished it all by then!

- 1 chipotle chile with 2 tsp sauce from can of chipotles in adobo sauce

- Mix all ingredients in blender until smooth. Chill in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
I have lived overseas for many years and missed out on the whole chipotle thing. I am back for a bit and decided to buy a can of chipotles and see what the whole craze was about. I just made the above recipe (although I added a clove of garlic as well) and this is just out of the world. Cool but spicy at the same time.
When I go back home I am going to have to figure out how to make chipotles in adobo sauce (or some substitute for that) to make this for the rest of the family.
Do you have some recipes using this as an ingredient?
Can i use store bought chipotle sauce instead chipotle Peppers?
yes, that will work!

I don’t have any cilantro in my place. Would it completely change the flavour if I omitted it?
