Get ready to slather this sauce on literally everything, because it's quite possibly the best, quick and easy Southwest Chipotle Sauce ever! Super spicy, tangy, creamy, and almost like the Subway version. Try it on burgers, sandwiches, or as a dip to make veggies more tolerable.
Let's Talk About What Makes This Southwest Chipotle Sauce so Amazing!
I'm low key obsessed with Subway and one of my favourite sauces has to be their Chipotle Southwest Sauce! Its just the perfect amount of spice and suuuuper creamy with a hint of tanginess. It literally checks all the boxes. What more could you ask for from a sauce after all? But, I'm not exactly in a position where I can go to Subway every single day, and I'm sure you can relate. So, I decided to come up with the GOAT homemade Southwest Chipotle Sauce recipe. I'm telling you now, you're going to be putting this sauce on alllll the things!
I could go on and on about what makes this quick and easy southwest chipotle sauce so perfect. But I'll save the long spiel and give you a short list instead:
- Super thick and creamy.
- SPICY. But not scalding your insides kind of spicy, which is always a plus!
- Addictive. It's hard resisting the urge to put massive amounts of it on literally everything.
- Lasts a long time in the fridge.
- Quick. It's a blend and go kind of deal.
Tips, Tricks and Modifications.
The only true non negotiable ingredient is the chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. I mean it's a no brainer that if you substituted this ingredient for anything else it wouldn't be a Southwest Chipotle Sauce anymore! But here are a few other modifications if needed.
- Use vegan mayo: I actually used a vegan mayo the first time I made this because it was all I had on hand. It tasted exactly the same as the non vegan version.
- Use dairy free yogurt or sour cream: I'm personally not sure how this would taste if substituted for the vegan alternative. However, I imagine it would taste pretty similar as long as you don't opt for something with a strong coconut flavour.
- Substitute dried parsley for basil: Using basil will alter the end flavour slightly. But it won't make too much of a difference. If you don't have basil either, just skip it all together.
- Whatever you do, don't use fresh parsley! It will change the flavour, texture and consistency of the sauce. Also, it won't be as shelf stable as if you used dried parsley. Its better to just skip the parsley all together than use fresh.
- Use a good blender for the best consistency. I recommend the Nutri Ninja Bullet.
