Tacos are amazing right? You really can’t get sick of tacos. They are so versitle. Besides from the party in your mouth -they are low fat, low carb, and easily gluten-free… easily vegetarian too for that matter. I LOVE tacos. I love corn tortillas with just carne asada, onions and cilantro or piled high with meat, cheese and veggies.
I have a problem with Rubio’s grilled chicken tacos. Seriously crave them every time I go out. It’s soo worth getting a fresh taco than a greasy hamburger. ok. a little more money. I keep wondering why on earth am I stuck on these Rubio’s tacos? So I went out and ordered more. and a few more after that. haha. I love the smoky grilled chicken, smooth avocado, fresh crunchy lettuce and topped with a creamy chipotle sauce. It seems like I can do everything but the sauce at home. So I set out to make a copycat chipotle sauce. SOOO happy at the results- you are going to love it too- especially if you don’t have a Rubio’s around here- you can make your own.
I tested this out with some friends…them not knowing what or why. I just laid out all the taco toppings and let them choose what they want. They all put the pinkish sauce on their tacos- despite no description of what it was. After they had emptied their plates (and before they went back for seconds) they said they loved looooved the tacos. They especially commented on the sauce “that sauce is AH-MAZING” to be exact.
You will want to thaw some chicken and slap it on the grill for a few minutes. Then pile with cheese, avocado/guacamole (DON’T LEAVE OUT THE AVOCADO!), lettuce, (chicken of course) homemade salsa (use this recipe) and top with the creamy chipotle sauce. the sauce is the boss.
Here’s a visual of what Chipotle peppers in adobo sauce looks like. For super spicy tacos you could blend one of those peppers in the sauce, but without the pepers there still will be a little kick.

- 1/2 cup Sour Cream
- 1/2 tsp garlic salt
