Chipotle Sauce

This no-cook sauce is one of my favorites and takes less than 5 minutes to make! You literally just throw everything into a blender at once and then it's done.

One of my favorite things about this sauce is that it tastes good on everything!! I usually make it for Mexican night-- tacos, burritos, nachos, quesadillas... or just as a dipping sauce with tortilla chips. But it doesn't stop there-- it's great on burgers, patty melts, sandwiches, etc. too!

It's also flexible in terms of spiciness. The spiciness of the sauce primarily comes from the canned chipotles, but there's also a little bit of cayenne and hot sauce. If it's too spicy, just add more sour cream and mayo to counteract that. If you like it spicier, add more chipotle!
