Chipotle peppers add deep smoky flavor to this rich blue cheese and cream sauce. It's delicious spooned over a grilled steak. Try it with fresh pasta or drizzled over a gourmet burger, too!

If you don't like very spicy food you probably want to stay away from this recipe - the chipotle/adobe sauce is incredibly hot! Even though Husband loves spice he didn't much like this at all saying he wouldn't mind a creamy chipotle sauce OR a creamy blue cheese and chive sauce but together it just didn't work. It didn't look very appetizing either. Oh well. Thanks anyway. Read More

The chipotle-blue cheese combination is an inspired idea but I preferred sour cream as a base. Also you must be extremely careful with the amount of chipotles you use. I don't even use the peppers; just about 3 tsp of adobo sauce. I add chopped fresh cilantro and it's fantastic! Read More

Sorry this was not my cup of tea. I love hot foods but this was over the top and the blue cheese and peppers dont make a good combo. Read More

I thought this sauce was pretty good. Personally I didn't think it was too hot. We eat spicy foods quiet often... so maybe that is why. I was worried about it being too spicy when I read the reviews before trying the recipe. I went ahead and used the peppers anyway but I made sure that I did not include the seeds. Next time I will include the seeds to give it more of a kick. The flavor was really good though. We used this sauce on homemade burgers with thick crispy bacon and it was wonderful. Oh yeah- I also made homemade steak fries for the side dish and this sauce was fantastic drizzled over the top of the crispy fries. This is a keeper! Read More
