Fat Free Creamy Chipotle Cilantro Sauce/Dressing

Total Time

I made this up the other night because I ran out of fat free yogurt for a raita. It was great on our grilled Thai chicken, and I'm sure it would be great with grilled fish or shrimp, on grilled veggies, etc. Very refreshing, but with a kick! Add an extra chipotle if you love spicy... If you have fresh tomatoes or cucumber, de-seed them and finely chop and add them in, for a great relish!


  1. Roughly chop all the veggies, from garlic to onions, and add to a mini-chopper (or blender, but my mini-chopper works soooo much better).
  2. Add the sour cream, salt, cumin and lime juice.
  3. Blend until well mixed, but with a little texture.
  4. Cover and chill for at least an hour before serving. Check for seasoning and add ground pepper and salt if needed.

This is really delicious! I halved the recipe, but otherwise followed it exactly. The chipotle and cilantro do a great job of disguising the fact that this contains fat free sour cream (I'm usually not a big fan of the stuff). This is very flavorful. It was good as a condiment with a Mexican dinner, and it makes a good salad dressing if it has been thinned a bit. Next time, I'll try adding some diced fresh tomato, too. Thanks for sharing!
