Lime Pepper Sauce – A Burrito Fresco Recipe

As promised, we are slowly releasing all of the recipes from our former restaurant, Burrito Fresco within this blog. We are so excited that our restaurant food is being enjoyed by people again!

Our menu was set up so you could create your own custom burritos, bowls, tacos, salads or nachos by choosing ingredients from different categories. Lime Pepper was one of our most popular sauces on the spicy side of things. In fact, it is Steven Michael’s favorite sauce and was a special request to be our next blog by restaurant regular, Matt (Hi, Matt!). After we closed the restaurant, we sold our salsas and sauces at local public markets for a few months, and Lime Pepper was a hit there as well.

Lime Pepper can be used as a topping sauce, as a replacement for dressing in a salad, or on its own as a dip with chips or fries. The cumin and chipotles give it a nice smoky flavor and some spice, while the lime adds a little bit of tang. The sour cream balances all of that by softening some of the heat and giving it a creamy texture. It’s still a little too hot for me, but to each their own!

This is super fast to make with a food processor, an easy addition to any meal. We’d love to hear how you like it in the comments below or on any of our social media platforms! If you ever visited Burrito Fresco, please let us know what recipe you’re dying to have, and we might just post it next!
