Better Than Subway - Creamy Chipotle Sauce

If your looking for a simple and easy way to spice up your sandwiches or dipping sauces, you’ve come to the right place! My favorite subway sandwich sauce  is the southwestern chipotle sauce. I tried it once on a tuna sandwich and that’s it… I became hooked! Since then I’ve never ever ordered a subway sandwich without it.

I love subways and all but I do most of my cooking at home. But that sauce! If I can get my hands on it at home I would be dreaming.

So a few months ago I began experimenting and experimenting for weeks until I came up without my very own chipotle sauce. Now it’s not exactly like the subways chipotle sauce, it’s better!

I added my own little twist on it, added some fresh cilantro, spiced it up a little more, and BAM! It’s a kick of southwestern goodness in a jar!

You can use this sauce on all different types of sandwiches, on salads, as a dip, or mix it with shredded chicken and make chipotle chicken sandwiches or wraps like I did with my award winning chipotle chicken grilled cheese sandwich.

  1. This a amazing!! I did put 1 more pepper and a 1/2 teaspoon more Adobo Sauce in my recipe but that was just more or less because we like things spicy. The Adobo Sauce also gives it more of a smoky flavor. This is a must have recipe!!

  2. I loved this sauce! I thought the mayo would make this a little heavy, but it was perfect. I usually don’t like spice hot foods (sensitive system), but this was not too much or too little in heat and spice. This is a very VERSATILE sauce I can think of a MULTITUDE of dishes I can use this in.

  3. Yogurt was very overpowering. Made the sauce pretty bad.

  4. This is Better than the subway sauce (which i love) thank you for an amazibg recipe ill be using it a lOt. I lIke more heat than the subway sauce With this i just aDd extra of the adobo sauce.

  5. Awesome, I definitely make sauce with this receipe. GrrrrEATt.

  6. Awesome recipe! I ran out of my favorite chipotle salad dressing and couldn’t find it in the stores, so I needed this! I used it to make deviled eggs- everyone loved them! Just added extra salt and pepper for them. Now using it for my salads, and just about everything! Thanks!

    1. Glad you like this recipe, Kristi! I will try it on deviled eggs!

  7. I made this Chipotle Sauce and put it on philly cheese steak sandwiches and it was super yummy!!!

  8. Substituted Just Mayo* for mayonnaise and veggie broth for the yogurt for a vegan version
    Thankyou for posting, you have saved my dinner tonight

    1. Veggie broth? Wont that water it down massively? Would love an alternative to Yogurt. Wife hates it passionately…….

  9. I tried the Chipotle sauce recipe today for Taco night and it turned out beautifully. Thanks for this amazing recipe 🙂

  10. What kind of chile is? Can you send a picture?

    1. It’s the chipotle chili that come in a small can. You should be able to find them in the spanish section in you’re supermarket.

  11. Made this recipe 3 weeks ago and everyone loved it! I made it again to dress a chicken fajita salad and it was a huge hit again. This time I added a 1 inch wedge of vidalia onion, 1 tiny clove garlic, juice from 1/2 a lime and a pinch of the zest. I love this recipe because it is flexible. Thank you for sharing!
