Awesome Sauce

If you've ever had the Bitchin' Sauce [Chipotle style] from Costco, you know how amazing it is to now have a whole food, plant-based version of it! O.M.G. YASSSS!!!

Good as a dip for tortilla chips or pitas or veggies, spread on toast or in a wrap, as a salad topper/dressing, in lettuce boats, on top of roasted cauliflower... whatever!

NOTES:

  • Freezes well for later use!
  • For those in weight loss mode, be careful! It's a heavy almond butter base and its GOOD.
  • The canned chipotle in adobo sauce typically has *some* oil in it, but since we're treating this ingredient and this recipe as a condiment/dish enhancer, I don't sweat it. You could always make your own out of re-hydrated dried chipotle peppers. Here's a homemade recipe from The Organic Dietitian.

    Awesome sauce is Awesome and Mark loved it too! We used it as salad dressing but this would be great over sautéed kale or broccoli and cauliflower too!
