Chipotle Lime Sauce

OMG. I am obsessed with this sauce right now. It’s spicy, creamy, vegan, oil-free, and absolutely killer on a savory breakfast.

I was going to wait to share this recipe as part of my upcoming cookbook (did you catch my little announcement about that?) but it’s way too good to keep to myself.

The best part about it is that it’s oil free, so it can be counted towards a protein serving and used in a BLE breakfast!!

What should you put it on you may ask?


Check out the bottom of this post, there’s a couple of sneak preview photos for my cookbook. It’s amazing on anything involving potatoes, veggies, eggs, avocado, corn, and southwest flavors. Enjoy!! 🙂

Chipotle Lime Sauce

1/2 Protein Serving
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 0 minutes
Servings: 4 Servings
Recipe From: Katie’s Conscious Kitchen


  • 1/2 cup tahini 4 oz
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 1 chipotle chili pepper canned in adobo sauce
  • 2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • pinch of black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp Water or non-dairy milk to thin


  • Blend all ingredients in a small blender cup, or in a small jar with an immersion blender. Add water or milk to reach desired consistency.
  • Divide into 4 equal servings.


In BLE, each portion would count as half of a protein, as each portion contains roughly 1 oz of tahini. Instead of trying to weigh a single serving, I just divide the batch evenly among 4 small jars or tiny dressing containers with lids and count each as 1/2 of a protein. 
Yes, adobo sauce has sugar in it, but this recipe uses the pepper, not the sauce. Any sweetness is spread among the 4 servings and not noticeable.

    Hi Katie, I just made this and it is excellent! Your site is my go-to for consistently wonderful plant-based, BLE recipes. For BLE wouldn’t this make 4 servings at 1/2 protein each? (due to 4 oz tahini?) Or 8 servings at 1/4 protein?

    • So glad you liked it Maureen! I’ve been putting it on literally every meal for the last week. Oh dear. Good catch on the calculation error. I must be getting sloppy! Yes, 4 servings at 1/2 protein each is correct. Fixing it now. Thank you! 🙂
