Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sour cream or Greek yogurt
  • 1/3 cup mayo
  • 1/2 cup (lightly packed) cilantro
  • 1 chipotle chili pepper in adobo sauce + 1 teaspoon adobo sauce (or to taste)
  • Juice from 1/2 lime
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Add all ingredients to the bowl of a food processor. Process on high for about 30 seconds.
  • Serve immediately or chill for an hour (or longer) prior to serving. It will keep in the fridge for a few days in an airtight container.

Notes

  • I realize that the size of the chipotle chili peppers vary depending on the brand you buy. I would suggest using a SMALL pepper unless you want this recipe really spicy. 
  • Greek yogurt makes an excellent substitute for sour cream if you want to be more mindful of calories.
  • The recipe makes about a cup of dressing.
  • Nutritional information is provided as a courtesy only and should be construed as an estimate rather than a guarantee. Ingredients can vary and Salt & Lavender makes no guarantees to the accuracy of this information.
