How to make chipotle sauce
To make this sauce, you’ll need to begin by making the low-fat eggless mayo with only 5 ingredients and a blender.
Place all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. This mayo can be used on bean burgers, sandwiches, and in sauces. Store in a jar with a lid in the refrigerator. It will keep up to about 10 days.
Next, blend a half-cup of the mayo, chipotle pepper, lime juice, sweetener, smoked paprika, salt, garlic powder, and cumin in mixer and process until smooth.

Chipotles are spicy
Chipotle in adobo sauce can be found in the Latino section of most grocery stores. There are 8-10 chilies in each can, and it takes me a while to go through that many because they are quite hot.
Once I open a can, I place the other chilies and sauce into a plastic bag and store in my refrigerator to be used in other recipes like hummus and salsa. They have a small amount of oil in them, so some may want to use chipotle powder instead.
No cooking required, and only a blender is needed to make this recipe. Whether you put it on burgers and sandwiches or use it as a dip, this stuff is amazing!
Vegan Tofu Mayonnaise
Other than the chipotles, the other magic ingredient is my Low-Fat Eggless Mayo that makes it creamy and delicious!
For me, tweaking the salt, lemon juice, and vinegar for your personal tastes can really make it pop.
Recipe makes approximately one pint of sour cream. Keeps in the refrigerator for about 7-10 days.
This tasty, eggless mayo has only 11 calories and (.4) grams of fat per Tablespoon. And it’s loaded with protein because it’s made with tofu.
Is soy good for you?
Some people are not too sure about tofu, because it contains phytoestrogens. Turns out, phytoestrogens are very health promoting and are not at all like our body’s natural estrogen that can cause harm and lead to disease.
This makes so much sense, because the countries that consume the most soy, such as Japan and China, have the lowest rates of cancer and chronic disease. This short video will explain the benefits of soy.
