Recipe Notes

  • Make sure the cream cheese is softened to make blending easier.
  • If you're sensitive to spicy foods only add half the amount of chipotle peppers and sauce to the blender. Then blend and taste the sauce. Add more peppers and sauce if you want it spicier.
  • Make due with the ingredients you have in your kitchen. This recipe is very adaptable. So feel free to change up the recipe if you need to.
