Subway Chipotle Southwest Sauce is my favorite from all the Subway Sauces! It’ll make any sandwich taste delicious and tastes just like the chipotle sauce from Subway!
I love replicating some of my favorite Restaurant menu items! Such as Taco Bell’s Creamy Jalapeno Sauce or the tasty Chick-fil-a Sauce for dipping fries and chicken sandwiches! This Subway sauce was another successful experiment! Try our Subway’s Peanut Butter Cookies if you favor Subway!
Subway Chipotle Southwest Sauce
It’s real folks, you can actually make one of my most favored subway sauces right at home! I’m so excited about this one because there was a time I ordered packs of them from the Subway Restaurant, (talk about pregnancy cravings!), And when I order a subway sandwich you’re likely to see this orange zesty chipotle sauce drizzled over my Subway Club, Black Forest Ham or Oven-Roasted Chicken Sandwich! Trust me I know how it needs to taste I used to work at subway so, I’m pretty familiar with the flavor profile!
Now just because I worked at Subway doesn’t mean we knew the sauce recipes, they simply came pre-made. It wasn’t until years later that I decided to replicate my favorite Subway sauce. The recipe development was a total hit even though I threw out batches of it before it reached the perfect stage!
Making Subway Chipotle Southwest Sauce
As of a result, after inspecting the sauce that I ordered to go one day, I realized it had specks of dried herbs in it like a bottle of ranch dressing. That gave me the clue that it had to be ranch with chipotle peppers and sure enough, it took off from there. I tried and tried, added sour cream, more mayo tossed, and started again until it tasted just like the Southwest Chipotle sauce that I had right beside me to compare!
I had my sister-in-law as the testing individual who had to put up with all my different creations and she herself said you got it! (Before you think she was just being gullible she was actually quite difficult to please because she too knows her chipotle sauce, so let’s just say I had some straightforward feedback to deal with.) 😆
However, I couldn’t be any more excited about this! Making the Subway Chipotle Southwest Sauce was quite rewarding when I got it to taste like Subway’s sauce! I want to hear from you! Leave your feedback and comments below!
