Chipotle Southwest Sauce

I am a total sauce girl! Every time Jordan and I go to Raising Cane’s or Slim Chickens I order extra sauce because I love it that much. In the process of trying to recreate their sauce, I ended up finding a combination I love even more. AND it has a spicy kick to it!

So theirs has a mayo and tomato base with various spices. I went with a mayo and Chipotle peppers in Adobo sauce because I had it leftover from Taco Tuesday. And honestly, it was the perfect choice because (1) it is made with tomatoes but has the kick from the Chipotle peppers, and (2) the Adobo sauce is full of flavor.

**Fast forward to taste testing.** So I am scooping it up by the spoonful with my crinkle fries and Jordan says to me, “You made southwest sauce. You know the spicy pepper version?” It was a palm to forehead type of moment. Either way, try it for yourself! Most sauces have similar ingredients but they vary in taste because of the amount of ingredients we put in them. Right?…

Ingredients for Chipotle Southwest Sauce alongside a blender

How to Make the BEST Chipotle Southwest Sauce

Use high quality mayonnaise. Making homemade sauces means every ingredient counts. So, make sure you are using a good mayonnaise. I like to use Avocado Oil Mayonnaise because it is healthier and has a wonderful flavor.

Make it as spicy as you want. You can add more or less Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce to suit your taste buds. I cannot handle heat very well and this has the perfect level of spice. It feels warm but not overwhelming.

Store Chipotle Southwest Sauce in a glass jar. All of my homemade sauces and dressings are stored in a jar. They are airtight, I don’t have to worry about spills, they are dishwasher safe, and won’t leach harmful chemicals into your food.

Refrigerate an hour prior to serving. Letting the flavors meld together and develop is essential!
