Creamy Chipotle Sauce

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by ninja

A simple, creamy and smoky sauce to accompany Stuffed Mexican Chicken Medallions, "Stuffed Mexican Chicken Medallions". Tip: Store chipotle pepper-adobo sauce puree in freezer-ready, sealable plastic bags, pressing the puree flat in the bags before freezing. Break off pieces to use whenever you need to add some smoky heat. Use 1-2 teaspoons of the puree in this recipe. From St. Louis chef Coby Arzola.

I had this sauce in Mexico and fell in love with it! We like a little more heat, so used 1 more teaspoon of chipotle and another teaspoon of salt. It is sooooo good. I'm planning Eggs Benedict with this sauce :). Yum.
