  • 1/2 cup plain coconut yogurt (or 2/3 cup silken tofu)
  • 1 chipotle in adobo sauce
  • 1/2 tsp. adobo sauce
  • 1-2 cloves garlic
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
  • 1/8 tsp. cumin


  • Scrape away the seeds from the chipotle with a knife (use caution when handling chipotle, and wash your hands when done.)
  • Add all ingredients to a blender or food processor and blend/pulse until smooth.
  • Taste and adjust seasonings/consistency as necessary.


Recipe yields about 2/3 cup sauce.
If the sauce is too thick, thin it out with more lime juice or water. If it’s too thin, add more yogurt/silken tofu. If you like a touch of sweetness, add agave to taste.
