One of my favorite takeout meals is burritos. I love that you get to totally customize a burrito to your liking – from the fillings to the toppings and the delicious sauces, it’s a true treat! And my absolute favorite sauce has to be Chipotle burrito sauce. It’s creamy, spicy, and seriously good! I love it so much that I wanted to find a way to make this sauce at home to enjoy whenever I want. So, I tasted the sauce (only a few times), figured out the flavors, and recreated it at home. The best part is that it’s insanely easy! You’ll need just 5 ingredients and 5 minutes to prepare it. Get ready because you’re going to love this!

1. Gather Ingredients

If you love spicy foods, odds are you already have a bottle of sriracha hanging around in your kitchen. The other ingredients are kitchen staples too! If I can make a recipe without having to take a trip to the grocery store, then it’s a double win! Along with the sriracha, you’ll need mayonnaise, fresh lime juice, garlic powder, and a dash of salt. Keep in mind if you follow a plant-based diet, I’ve tried this recipe with vegan mayo and it’s just as amazing!

2. Stir To Combine

Simply dump all the ingredients into a bowl or container and stir. If you won’t use it all at once, we suggest making it in a mason jar for easy storage in the fridge. Whisk all the ingredients together until you’ve got a smooth, creamy consistency. At this point, give it a taste to see if you like it. If you prefer your sauce more tangy, increase the lime juice a 1/4 teaspoon at a time. If you enjoy really spicy foods you can increase the heat by adding in more sriracha. Again, only add a little bit at a time. Keep in mind, the darker the color of the sauce, the spicier it will be.

3. Serve!

What I love about this sauce is that it can be used for so much more than burritos! You can serve it with nachos, with pizza, or with our favorite, Easy Weeknight Leftover Chicken Quesadillas. Alternatively, you can store it in the fridge for up to a week. This recipe serves about 4 so you might want to double (or triple) the recipe if you’re making this for a party! Enjoy!
