This is a loose recipe that's more about proportions than quantities. The flavors are based on the Mexican street food elote, or roasted corn dipped in a rich and tangy sauce. This is that sauce. It can be used as a raw vegetable dip, salad dressing for greens or cold pasta, or sauce for flavorful meat or fish, such as salmon.


  • Sour cream
  • Mayonnaise
  • Lime juice
  • Powdered smoked chipotle
  • Powdered cumin

  • Start with an equal mixture of one part sour cream and one part mayo
  • Add generous portion of chipotle
  • Add slightly less cumin (can be overpowering) and chili powder
  • Add generous lime juice to taste, bearing in mind that this will also reduce the viscosity of the mixture
