Awesome Sauce...a recipe

Here's my recipe for awesome sauce.  We throw this on grilled or raw veggies or wrap it up in turkey for a quick, healthy snack.  It's whole30/paleo compliant as well, but don't let that deter's AWESOME!!

Do a "quick" soak of 2c raw cashews.  Put the cashews in a bowl, cover with water and microwave for 3 minutes.  This is quicker than an overnight soak and achieves the same goal.

In your blender put:
2 large cloves garlic
4 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (don't like spicy? reduce the number of peppers)
2tsp red wine vinegar
juice off one lemon
drained cashews
chicken/veg stock to taste- you will need at least 3/4 of a cup.  After that it's preference for consistency.  I tend to use at least a cup.

Blend!  scoop into an airtight container and use within the week.
