Yes, raspberries have a deliciously sweet and slightly tart flavor that many people enjoy. They add a burst of fruity goodness to dishes like desserts, sauces, and dips. They’re soft in texture and they kinda burst in your mouth as you eat them!

What is chipotle sauce made of?

Chipotle sauce is typically made from chipotle peppers, which are smoked and dried jalapeño peppers, blended with various ingredients such as vinegar, spices, and sometimes sweeteners. This combination creates a flavorful and slightly spicy sauce with a distinct smoky taste. You can view a sample recipe by Eating Well here.

FAQ

Why is chipotle sauce so spicy?

Chipotle sauce is spicy because it contains chipotle peppers, which are smoked and dried jalapeño peppers known for their heat. These peppers pack a punch and add a fiery kick to the sauce, making it spicy and flavorful.

Can I use regular cream cheese instead of vegan cream cheese?

Yes, feel free to do that if you don’t eat vegan!

Can I use raspberry preserves instead of raspberry chipotle dip?

I do not recommend this but if you’re experience in cooking, feel free to try substituting the raspberry with raspberry preserves. Note that I cannot guarantee a successful recipe this way.

Raspberry preserves tend to contain a lot of sugar, so you might need to add some vinegar to balance it out. Also add a couple tablespoons of water to thin it out. Please refer to this Chipotle Raspberry Sauce recipe as you do this.

Is there a substitute for raspberry chipotle sauce if I can’t find it?

If you can’t find raspberry chipotle sauce, you can try making a homemade version using this Raspberry Chipotle Jam / Jelly recipe. Alternatively, you can use a different fruity and spicy sauce such as mango habanero sauce.

Can I make the dip ahead of time for a party?

Absolutely! Assembling it takes a maximum of 2 minutes so as long as you’ve got your cream cheese and raspberry chipotle sauce ready, you’re set.

If you’d like to save those 2 minutes on the day of the party, you can mix the cream cheese with the raspberry chipotle sauce until they turn light pink in color.

Can I freeze this raspberry chipotle dip?

I do not recommend freezing this chipotle cream cheese dip since it will change the texture.

    Didn’t think of this combo before. The raspberry sauce itself can be quite sharp but when paired with cream cheese, it’s so good.
