Spicy, Smoky, Creamy, Sweet
If you are looking for an out of the ordinary salsa, try this chipotle yogurt sauce. It combines plain yogurt, smoky chipotle in adobo, tart lime and sweet honey. It’s great for topping beef tacos, bistec or carne asada. Fantastic with fish tacos too. Or, use it as a vegetable dip or as a salad dressing. It’s very versatile.
How to Make
It’s a snap to make. You’ll need 1 cup of plain unsweetened yogurt, 1/2 cup real honey, 1 chipotle pepper in adobo, the juice of 1 lime and 1 tsp+ of salt.
Place all of the ingredients except 1 tsp. of salt in your blender and blend until the chipotle pepper has evenly incorporated. Serve immediately or refrigerate for 30 minutes to allow the flavors to concentrate.
The flavor is mildly hot. Add a second chipotle pepper if you want a hotter salsa. Another chipotle also gives it a nice red color.
