This is a great dip this is definitely not for the tame of heart. If you have ever eaten chipotle peppers, you will realize this dip has a pretty good kick to it.
Chipotles are red smoked jalapenos. They have good heat with a smoky flavor.

I eat this mostly with tortilla chips, but I also use it as a topping for my chicken sandwiches.

If you can’t find ground chipotle pepper, Penzey’s Spices is a great place to find it.


2 cups sour cream
1 cup mayonnaise
1-2 Tablespoons chipotle powder
4 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup lime juice

In a medium-small bowl, mix all of the ingredients.
Start off with the lesser amount of chipotle powder and add more if you want.
For best flavor, cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.

Makes about 3 cups dip.
