Two Ingredient skinny Chipotle Creme

Lillie
My favorite macro-friendly "condiment" by FAR! Smokey (even though I used to think I didn't like smokey), spicy (only as sfpicy as you want) and creamy.  Wakes up just about everything.

Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup fat free sour cream or light sour cream, mayo, or greek yogurt.*
  • 2 chipotle peppers plus 1 tbs sauce from canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (found at most grocery stores near the green chilis and enchilada sauce etc. I prefer this Embasa brand but otherwise just check the nutrition facts, some are surprisingly higher in carbs. No deal-breakers but still...

Instructions
 

  • Spoon 1 cup sour cream into a small food processor, or blender jar.
  • Add about 2 chipotle peppers plus 1 tbs of the sauce (depending on how much heat you like) to the sour cream and blend or process... all done!
  • OR
  • You can just do a quick fine chop of your peppers and then stir them in yourself if you hate dirtying the big appliances. I do that when I'm in a pinch and realize I'm out when I'm in the middle of building my sandwich!

Notes

  • *(I prefer the sour cream because I usually run out of protein a the end of a day and am not looking to add any from the greek yogurt... and I prefer the consistency. But all of them work! If you use lite sour cream because it's hard to find fat free... I would just log the lite sour cream - the addition of the peppers changes the macros so little.)
  • Sometimes I add a little lime juice (like Bobby Flay in his chipotle mayo)  and a pinch of salt... particularly when I’m using it for tacos. But since I make so much at a time,  I keep it in my fridge with just the two ingredients because I think the lime juice makes it turn bad faster.)
I always make double this since we eat so much. I blend a WHOLE container of sour cream with 4-5 peppers and a couple of tbs of sauce, and then pour it back in the sour cream container to scare anyone who comes over and opens it expecting it to be white.
