Potato lover from birth

I have to admit, I am a serious potato lover–baked potatoes, mashed potatoes, boiled potatoes, Chili Cheese FriesLoaded Potato Skin Bites, baked French fried potatoes, air fried potatoes–any kind of potatoes!

Probably my favorite way to eat them is very crunchy, which means French fries in my air fryer. And when there are crunchy fries, there also needs to be a delicious dipping sauce.

This low-fat vegan chipotle sauce recipe is the perfect dipping sauce, and it’s so easy to make!

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 a mixer and process until smooth.

Now, it’s ready to be served as a dip, salad dressing, or topping sauce for my Best Black Bean Burgers and even a delicious Bake Blooming Onion.

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!

Low-Fat Vegan Mayo in only 5-minutes!

This vegan mayo takes only about 3-minutes and a blender to make and taste amazing. We use it on sandwiches and in other recipes like coleslaw and potato salad.

For me, tweaking the salt, lemon juice, and vinegar for your personal tastes can really make it pop.

The 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.

Would I be able to use date sugar instead of regular sugar or "sucanat" or other types of artificial sugar?

Hi Wendy- Date sugar works great in both of these recipes.

This recipe is seriously TO. DIE. FOR. The other reviews do not lie! Made the chipotle sauce and it was sooooo good! I used quick rolled oats, added 1 whole bell pepper so the rest wouldn’t be wasted. So much flavor, used some Seattle Sourdough Baking Company sandwich rounds from Safeway and toasted them. I will be making this again and again!

Hi Kelli- Ha! I can SO relate because this is one of my favorites too. When I make Black Bean Burgers, I make a double or triple batch of this chipotle sauce and use it for a week on anything I can think of. I'm so glad you appreciate it as much as I do, and thank you for the great feedback. :)

How much of the chipotle powder?

Monday 11th of March 2019

The amount added should really be to your preference. Chipotle powder is pretty spicy, so I would start out with only a small amount, because more can always be added if needed.

Mmmmm. I can think of so many things to use this sauce for. I never liked paprika until I tried smoked paprika, now I can't live without it and put it in as many dishes as I can.

Thursday 14th of February 2019

I completely understand. Smoked paprika is a staple at my house too! :)
