Did you know that chipotle peppers are simply smoked and dried jalapenos?

I suppose it’s no wonder then why I love them so (considering I use jalapenos in just about every single dish I make). I’m a sauce girl, too – I even love to dip my fries in different sauces (even just plain old yellow mustard if the mood strikes), drizzle them over baked potatoes and vegetables and even use them in place of mayo or mustard on a sandwich. All of which this easy chipotle sauce recipe is perfect for!  

 

I made a really yummy Mexican chicken flatbread pizza and drizzled this sauce over the top as soon as I pulled it hot from the oven. It brought all of the flavors together and made it really pretty, too! Here’s a sneak peek photo for you:

This easy chipotle sauce recipe really makes a difference in presentation, doesn’t it? I promise you, if you love chipotle and spicy dishes, you will be using this easy chipotle sauce recipe on everything! I used plain yogurt instead of sour cream or all mayo to lighten it up but you could certainly use either of those if you don’t have plain yogurt on hand. I keep mine in a squirt bottle in the fridge so I can give a quick drizzle to whatever dish I need some for – it’s easier than having to grab a spoon or knife to spread it. It’ll keep for a couple of weeks in the fridge but I doubt it will last that long!
