  • Using a blender or food processor, process all ingredients until smooth. Add additional chipotle powder and/or cayenne pepper powder, to taste and heat preference. Stir well.
  • Use immediately as a marinade for grilled chicken or pork or as a dipper.


The cayenne pepper powder is optional, but it's the best option for adding heat without additional smokiness. Cayenne tends to be more subtle in flavor than the smokier, earthier chipotle powder. Plus, it's at minimum four times hotter, so a little goes a long way to adding some punch to the sauce.
