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 you...it'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
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.
