  • About

Sour cream adds richness and creaminess while also balancing the heat of the chipotle and cayenne in this sauce. I love it on chicken (obviously), but also on pork or fried seafood dishes as well.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups (480 ml) sour cream
  • ½ cup (120 ml) store-bought mayonnaise
  • Finely grated zest of 1 lime
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) fresh lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon ground cayenne
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves

Method

In a medium bowl, whisk together the sour cream, mayonnaise, lime zest, lime juice, chipotle, cumin, cayenne, salt, and cilantro. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour to allow the flavors to meld. The sauce will keep, tightly covered in the refrigerator, for up to 3 days.
