Creamy Chipotle Sauce is dairy-free and perfect for pouring over black bean burrito bowls for an extra burst of flavor. It's easy to make and plant-based too!
This sauce is a mixture of simple ingredients with no blender required.
- Cashew Butter: Use store-bought cashew butter if you don't want to use a blender. You can always use homemade cashew butter if you prefer!
- Chipotle Sauce: This chipotle sauce (affiliate link) comes in a small can without the chipotle peppers. It is spicy so make sure to adjust the amount to you preference.
- Non Dairy Milk: Almond, oat, soy or cashew milk.
- Hot Sauce: Use a Mexican style hot sauce.
- Seasonings: Cumin, chili powder, salt and pepper.
- Chopped Cilantro: This is optional.
Place all of the ingredients into a container with a tight fitting lid. Use a spoon or a spatula to stir everything until smooth. Add more liquid to create a thin sauce to use as a salad dressing. Use less liquid to have more of a sour cream consistency for things like chicken tacos.
