Chipotle and Coriander

If you are looking forward to put a spicy, smoky and aromatic touch to your snacks or antojitos. Make sure to try this delicious chipotle and cilantro dressing.

The chipotle pepper was used since Prehispanic times. In the Nahuatl language
chilpoctli means “smoked chili". And to prepare this dressing you will need a chipotle pepper in adobo, that you will find canned in any supermarket.

The mixture of cream with milk, that is used in this preparation, gives a very creamy consistency to the dressing and it attenuates the chili’s hotness. The fresh coriander also helps to moderate the chile’s hotness and it gives a very aromatic and fresh touch to the preparation.

The final result is an appetizing chipotle and coriander dressing that will give
a smoky, spicy and refreshing touch to your favorite dishes .
