Chipotle chili powder has an earthy flavor with a deep smokiness that’s created during the drying and smoking process. The powder first starts off as ripe, red jalapeño peppers that have been slowly wood-smoked.
If you’re not sure if like this spice, remember that a little bit goes a long way so be sure to use a light hand. Build the flavor up if need be until it reaches the expectations of your taste buds.
This sauce can be used as a dip, thinned out for a dressing, or you can even use the sauce to coat kale, making a wonderful kale chip with a little heat. I love recipes that are versatile like this.
In fact, I do this with many of my recipes. The labor that it takes to make one recipe can save me a lot of time throughout the week when I divide it up, giving it new life every other day.
When I sat down to enjoy this sauce, I tried hard to remember what sauces / dips I enjoyed as a child… or shoot, even my early adult years. I came up blank. All I can recall eating is Frito Bean Dip and Ranch Dip in a jar. Other than that… my palate didn’t understand other complex flavors.
I am truly amazed as to how a simple decision to eat a high raw diet has totally change my eating experience. It opened up a new world of ethnic flavors and has expanded my menu. Well, it’s time to let you go so you get busy in the kitchen. Many blessings, amie sue
