Creamy Lemon Chipotle Dressing

The easiest chipotle dressing ever. This creamy lemon chipotle dressing is spicy and creamy. It’s perfect for taco night.

Remember those pickled sweet peppers that I told you about last week? And, that awesome salad I put them in? Well, this is the dressing that I made to go with it. It’s sort of a spin off of a chipotle aioli that I made for some burgers recently. Anyway, it’s delicious. It’s creamy, but there’s no dairy and it’s just spicy enough to knock your socks off. It’s perfect for any salad, but I’ve really enjoyed it in taco salads with those pickled peppers.

To make the dressing, I used a lemon olive oil that we got on our trip to door county this summer, but you could definitely add a little lemon zest if you’re using regular oil to get that lemon flavor. Other than that I just threw everything into a food processor until it was nice and smooth. Couldn’t be easier.

Quick tip: Try storing your dressing in a squeeze bottle to make it easy to use and pour.

    I am making this and one other dressing for a taco salad bar for 80 people. Will this be enough or should I double it?

      I would actually triple or quadruple it, just to be safe. One batch will definitely not be enough. I hope that helps!
