This is not a hate on Chipotle, because boy do I love the stuff, but when I was asked to create a burrito recipe, I couldn't help but try and replicate theirs. I based this recipe exactly off my order at Chipotle — a chicken fajita burrito — and I did the leg work and interviewed a former employee of the chain to get the scoop. That's when I learned that Chipotle is so good, they even keep most of their recipe secrets from their employees, too. Because of that, a lot of this was based off of instinct, but I was happy to hear that my burritos tasted even better than Chipotle's.Click here to see 6 Burrito Recipes: Simple or Sophisticated, You Decide.

Americas’ most popular burrito chain also serves an addictive salad dressing that tastes incredible on just about anything. Because we love it so much, we have tested and perfected a version of Chipotle’s Chipotle-Honey Vinaigrette that’s easy enough for any home cook to prepare and rivals the original. This vinaigrette is so versatile that it’s perfect drizzled simply on top of crisp romaine salad, but also works great as a dip and makes a wonderful appetizer served with a crudité. You can also use this dressing to marinate chicken, fish, and even beef.

Chipotle Just Dropped the Recipe for Their Popular Corn Salsa on TikTok

With favorite foods (slightly) harder to come by and everyone officially bored out of their minds, these pandemic times have been a boon for food content on TikTok. The social media app with potentially exploitable security flaws is chock-full of all sorts of life-changing kitchen hacks and ingenious at-home recipes. And at this point, even Chipotle is using the platform to reveal some of its secrets.

After TiKTok user @Abigaliand_ recently commented asking Chipotle to drop their corn salsa recipe, the chain of Mexican grills obliged via a TikTok showing exactly how this sweet yet spicy delicacy is prepared.

Check out the TikTok post here.

Unless Chipotle is hiding some secret ingredient that didn’t get mentioned in the video, making this colorful corn salsa at home couldn’t be simpler if you have access to a good knife and the right produce. The base ingredients are kernels of corn, chopped onion, diced jalapeno, and chopped cilantro. Once those veggies and herbs are all sliced and diced, the next step is to sprinkle some salt over the corn. From there, combine the onion, jalapeno, and cilantro together before dousing the mixture with lime juice. Finally, just mix all that up with the salty corn and you are officially good to go.

This isn’t the first time Chipotle has shared a recipe of theirs over TikTok. Recently, they shared their guac recipe, though it was technically just a repost of the info they shared on Twitter. Either way, it goes to show that they aren’t afraid to reveal some of their trade secrets to eager fans who might want to mix it up in the kitchen.

So if you want to replicate the experience of Chipotle without paying for delivery or venturing out into public, this summery corn salsa recipe is exactly what you need right now. If any friends or family you serve this to ask for some guac, maybe don’t charge them extra.

Chipotle Chocolate Churros

This recipe for the Chipotle Chocolate Churros is part of a sponsored campaign with TABASCO®. However, all opinions expressed are my own.

Chocolate can be a tricky ingredient when used tempered. When, adding other ingredients to the melted chocolate those have to be applied dried or in powder form to preserve the chocolate chemical structure. Otherwise the sauce becomes a fudge and what we want is a velvety dipping sauce for the churros.

The velvety chipotle chocolate sauce

At home, we love this treat after a nice dinner, for a special dessert or to eat as a snack for la merienda. The Chipotle Chocolate Churros are also a welcomed dessert in parties and taquizas.

Surprisingly delicious and unexpected Chipotle Chocolate Churros

We all have a sweet tooth so serving something special with an element of surprise it is a must do to end a memorable reunion with family and friends.

Perfect treat to end a fabulous taquiza

Me, being Mexican I always like to incorporate a spicy kick to all the foods I prepare. Because who can live without spice. TABASCO® is an iconic American brand that’s family owned and has been around for more than 145 years. It is an ingredient that I always have in my pantry.

The Best Homemade Meatballs Recipe

You can serve these over rice, over pasta, in a sub sandwich or even nestle them in a tortilla! We love the versatility with these and the flavors are HUGE!

The recipe is pretty basic, which is what everyone needs during the week, but can absolutely be made ahead and reheated, or even frozen!

The Chipotle Tomato Sauce that I make with these is equally as delicious and can be as spicy or as mild as you prefer. Feel free to play around with the amount of chipotle you add to the meatballs and sauce to suit your own tastes.

The meatball mixture goes together in a pinch, and you could even forgo meatballs and make meatloaf instead!


Chipotle BBQ Sauce

This easy homemade barbecue sauce is a sauce for so many recipes. I tend to make this and adjust the final spices, depending on who I feeding and the recipe. I tend to make a triple batch and separate into quart size bags. The family loves this Chipotle BBQ Sauce on brisket, chicken, and pork. If you love a great BBQ pizza, this is my go-to sauce to use.

Where can I find &ldquochipotles in adobo sauce&rdquo?

Chipotles in adobo are a canned product that is usually found in the Mexican section of your grocery store or through Amazon, link in Shop this Recipe, below. The chipotles are smoked and dried jalapeno in a thick spicy yet somewhat sweet tangy red sauce.

I have had friends unable to locate chipotles in adobo sauce, any substitutions?

If you cannot find the chipotle in adobo at the grocer or have run out of chipotle in the cupboard, you never know when you may need to make a substitution. I found this great article and this is an awesome substitute!

Can Chipotle BBQ sauce be made ahead and frozen?

Yes. I encourage you to make a large batch, label 1 quart of gallon bags with date and sauce title and use when needed. I would use within 3 months. If refrigerated, about 3 days well-covered.

The portion of the canned chipotle chili in adobo that isn&rsquot used, can I freeze them?

Yes. The canned chipotles should be well covered and in the fridge for about 5 days or freeze for 3 months.

Here are a few of my favorite BBQ and side recipes:


Creamy Chipotle Sauce

This easy chipotle sauce is one of my favorite condiments to keep on hand! It's great for dipping and for spicing up your favorite tacos & bowls.

I say this all the time, but I truly believe that the key to a great veggie meal (or any meal, really) is a great sauce! With a great sauce on hand, you can use whatever veggies/grains/proteins you have to easily make salads, bowls, tacos, or sandwiches any night of the week. This smoky, creamy chipotle sauce is one of my absolute favorites to punch up any meal. It started as a sauce to the cauliflower tacos in my first cookbook and now I love it on everything from burrito bowls to breakfast tacos. It’s also great as a sweet potato fries dipping sauce, as it’s pictured here today. Keep reading for how to make it (and yes, there’s a vegan version!).

How to Make the Best Chipotle Sauce

What’s the secret to making a great chipotle mayo? Canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. They have an amazing smoky, spicy flavor that makes them one of my go-to ingredients in savory recipes. If you’ve never used chipotles in adobo, don’t worry – they’re not hard to find. Most grocery stores carry them in the Mexican aisle. After you make this recipe, use your leftover chipotles in BBQ jackfruit sliders or creamy vegan nacho cheese!

In this recipe, I balance the heat of the chipotles with sweetness from honey, richness from Greek yogurt & mayonnaise, and brightness from lime to make an addictive sauce that’s a bit lighter than a traditional chipotle aioli. And no need to worry if you’re vegan – maple syrup and vegan mayo work perfectly in place of the honey, yogurt, and traditional mayonnaise.

How to Use Chipotle Sauce

Ok, you’ve made your chipotle sauce. Now what do you do with it? I love to use it as a sweet potato fries dipping sauce, and it’s great to have on hand for quick no-recipe meals. Drizzle it over a burrito bowl or roasted veggies, or dollop it onto tacos like the cauliflower tacos in our first book! You could also slather it onto a sandwich or use it to top your favorite veggie burger.


The Best Chipotle Sauce Recipe

Chipotle Sauce Recipe will take you 5 minutes to prepare and you can enjoy it right away on your favorite salad. This sauce is a staple in our house, its incredibly creamy and flavorful with just the right amount of spiciness.

Packed with fresh cilantro, the Chipotle Sauce is also refreshing. For a more citrusy flavor, you can go ahead and add some lime zest to it.

I like to pour it over Chicken Lettuce Wraps, use it as a delicious sauce for homemade IP Chicken Wings, or simply use it as a dipping sauce for Roasted Potatoes.

Also, you can make a double batch from the start, as it can be refrigerated for up to 1 month. You can also replace the pesto in this Chicken Kabobs Recipe and make Chipotle Chicken Kabobs.

Where is a chipotle sauce from?

This sauce is basically a chili used primarily in Mexican and Mexican-inspired cuisines, such as Mexican-American, Tex-Mex, and Southwestern dishes. It comes in different forms, such as chipotles en adobo, and is widely used now all over the world.

What is Chipotle Sauce made of?

This is one of the easiest dishes you can make with only 5 simple ingredients. You will need:

  • Chipotle Pepper
  • Mayonnaise
  • Whole Milk Greek Yogurt
  • Cilantro, Cumin and Ground Coriander
  • Lime Zest &ndash Optional

How to make lime zest?

Follow these easy steps below:

  • First, rinse the lime.
  • Set your tool over a cutting board. A Microplane produces a very fine zest, perfect for baking and cooking. If you don&rsquot have a microplane, use the smallest holes on an ordinary grater.
  • Then, grate the green skin of the lime only. Grate just enough to get through the green skin, this way you can avoid the bitter white pith underneath.
  • Rotate the lime and repeat. Once the white pith is exposed, rotate the lime and zest the next strip of peel. Repeat until most of the peel is removed, or until you have enough zest for your recipe.

Chipotle Sauce Recipe Tips:

  • When making a mayo-based sauce, I recommend using full-fat mayo. However, you can totally make a &ldquoskinnier&rdquo version by using Fat-Free Mayo. But please be aware that the sauce will be a bit more watery.
  • Also, you can use either sour cream or whole milk Greek yogurt. I like both options, but prefer the sour cream as it adds a bit more tanginess to it.
  • In addition, using fresh cilantro is key, please don&rsquot try to substitute, the fresher the better. Make sure your cilantro is washed and towel-dried.
  • If you are vegan, make this with Veganaise or silken tofu. A flavor booster for sure!
  • You can adjust the spiciness as you please by adding more or less chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. I usually add 2, but if you like the sauce extra spicy add more.
  • Similarly, the cumin and coriander complement the sauce nicely. You can also add a little fresh lime zest for a more citrusy and refreshing flavor.
  • If you want to customize it, even more, a few garlic cloves will add a nice punch of flavor too.

What goes good with chipotle sauce?

It goes pretty much on anything. We love to use it on meats, fish, or tacos. Some good mixes are:
