What Do You Need To Make a Chipotle Dressing?
Chipotle Peppers with Adobo Sauce are essentially smoked and dried ripe jalapeno peppers. They are frequently marketed in cans with adobo sauce. Start with a modest amount and gradually increase as your tastebuds allow.
The recipe for Chipotle Dressing dressing gets a taste boost from fresh garlic. I recommend always mincing mine with a garlic press to get as much flavor as possible from the clove’s fluids. Fresh limes are the best, and I always juice them myself using my favorite juice reamer. I strain the lime pulp and seeds through a fine-mesh strainer.
Ingredients for Recipe Chipotle Dressing
- Replace the mayonnaise with Greek yogurt.
- Mix sour cream and mayonnaise together.
- 1 tablespoon finely chopped cilantro
- 12 teaspoon garlic powder in place of the garlic cloves

Chipotle Honey Vinaigrette Dressing
The recipe for Chipotle Dressing, made with simple ingredients, is my take on Chipotle’s honey vinaigrette! I adore the flavor of that dressing – a little amount of heat and smokiness from the chipotles in adobo sauce, well balanced with the crisp acidity of lime juice and a hint of sweetness from the honey.
Making your own salad dressings at home is worthwhile since you can customize the flavors to your liking and control the quality of the components, including the oil and added sugar.
Process and Tips for Chipotle Dressing
The beauty of this chipotle honey vinaigrette is how simple it is to make in a mason jar. Shaking the ingredients in a jar helps bring the dressing together, reduces clean-up, and may be kept in the same jar, further reducing dishes.
By excluding the use of a blender or food processor, this recipe is simpler, quicker, and requires far less cleaning than many other vinaigrette recipes. And bottled chipotles in adobo sauce are an excellent way to add gobs of flavor without having to smoke your own chilis.
