This is the salad dressing I often crave from our neighborhood Chipotle restaurant due to its mouth explosion of flavors.

The smoky spiciness of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce which is the key ingredient foils the sweetness of honey that complements the tanginess of red wine vinegar.

I love this Chipotle Salad dressing, so I trolled the internet to create a copycat version while fiddling around with the ingredients.

It’s super easy, just throw everything in your blender or food processor and voila! You just whipped up a signature flavor that most people like.

You can store it in the fridge to chill, and it will thicken up and taste almost identical to the original dressing.

You can spice things by adding extra chipotle pepper or add a teaspoon of adobo sauce for earthier flavor.
