This sauce y'all! I'm calling it Chipotle Awesome Sauce because it is completely AWESOME. One taste and you simply will not be able to stop.
Ingredients
  • 1 small chipotle pepper in canned adobo sauce*
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons water**
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup raw cashews or cashew pieces
  • juice from 1 lemon
  • 3 tablespoons nutritional yeast***
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 teaspoons bragg liquid aminos****
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt + more to taste as needed
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
Instructions
  1. Place all ingredients in a high-powdered blender. Blend on high for about one to two minutes.
  2. Store in the refrigerator for about 1-2 weeks.
Recipe Notes

*Feel free to add two peppers, if you really like spicy. With just one pepper, this sauce just has a little kick of spice.
**Add more water 1-2 tablespoons at a time, if needed to get things moving in the blender.
***Nutritional yeast can be found in the healthy foods aisle of your grocery store. It is not the same thing as baking yeast. It gives the chipotle awesome sauce a slight cheesy flavor.
-Adapted from Melissa's Bitchin' Sauce.
****Feel free to substitute with Tamari or Soy Sauce. Even Worchestire Sauce would probably be a good substitute.
