Last week I shared a picture of my dinner and it had you all asking…”where can I get that chipotle sauce recipe?”

Well, ask and you shall receive. Today I am sharing this super simple, super creamy Spicy Chipotle Tahini Sauce. With just a few ingredients, a blender and 5 minutes you will have this tasty sauce ready to go.

Now you may be wondering, “Rene, didn’t you share a chipotle sauce recipe not that long ago?”.

And the answer to that is, I sure did. You can find the recipe here.

I still stand by that recipe, but it is also a totally different flavor palate. So if chipotle sauce is your thing, you may want to try out both recipes to compare.

The great thing about this recipe is that it requires just 6 ingredients. One of them being my creamy dressing must-have…tahini. Tahini gives dressings a creaminess that is different than what you get from using vegan mayo. It is rich in texture without having an overwhelming flavor. Making it adaptable to any flavor you are trying to achieve.

TSV TIP: You can find tahini at pretty much every grocery store. Look in the nut butter section. Can’t find it at your store? Buy it online!

To manage the amount of spice this dressing has, start with less chipotles then add as you go. You know my spice-loving ass did the maximum amount, but I know not all of you like having your tastebuds burned off at every meal, so make it to your liking.

Now, what do you eat this with? EVERYTHING! It is amazing drizzled on top of tacos, burrito bowls or even salads. Make a batch and store it in the fridge to add to meals all week.

And be sure to check back tomorrow when I share my new favorite way to use this sauce…let’s just say fries are involved.

Spicy Chipotle Tahini Sauce

This Spicy Chipotle Tahini Sauce is the perfect topping for tacos, salads or bowls. Super creamy and just the right amount of zing!

  • 1/2 cup tahini
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 lime (or more to taste)
  • 7 oz can chipotles in adobo sauce (to taste)
  • pinch of garlic salt
  • water (as needed)
  1. Add tahini, vinegar, lime juice, chipotles* and garlic salt to a blender. Blend until combined – adding water** until desired consistency is reached.

  2. Transfer to a container and store in the fridge for 5-7 days.

*Start with less chipotles and add more as needed. Remember, the more water you add, the less spicy the sauce will be. 

**Depending on what you are using this for you will want to add more or less water. If using as a dip or sandwich spread you will want to keep this on the thicker side. If you are using this as a dressing, you will want to thin it out more.
