How to Make Chipotle Sauce

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.
