Chipotle Cream Dressing is a versatile topping for salads, sandwiches, and especially popular on Tex-Mex foods. This recipe was originally posted with my Cowboy Smokehouse Salad with Pulled Smoked Pork recipe. It’s a rich and zesty salad dressing for taco salads or even a sliced ripe tomato salad. I also use it as a topping on dishes such as fish tacos, chicken enchiladas, and marinated skirt steak fajitas.
From the kitchen of A Food Lover’s Delight….
Chipotle Cream Dressing
1/2 c mayonnaise
1/2 c sour cream or plain Greek yogurt
1 T adobo sauce (from canned chipotles) or you can use chipotle puree
2 T lime juice
1 T packed brown sugar
1 t salt
Place all ingredients in a bowl. Whisk until combined. Thin with more lime juice if you prefer a runnier consistency. Chill until ready for use.
Makes about a cup of dressing. Keeps for a week in a sealed container in the refrigerator.
Variations: Add some chopped smoked chipotle or green jalapeno peppers for more heat. Use fat-free sour cream and mayonnaise. Use 2 teaspoons of agave syrup instead of brown sugar. Add some Tabasco sauce if you like more heat.
