Sweet Chipotle Vinaigrette- Phase 3

This is an FMD friendly version of Chipotle's famous Vinaigrette.

Chipotle peppers are jalapenos that are allowed to turn red on the plant. Chipotles in Adobo is used in a lot of Mexican style dishes- they are simply smoked red jalapenos in a sauce. But this sauce always has sugar in it.

In Maintenance, use these canned chipotle peppers and a little of the sauce in this recipe- about 1 pepper and a tsp of the adobo sauce. But when you are actively working on weight loss- just use chipotle powder. This is not chili powder- that is a whole different pepper.  

Sweet Chipotle Vinaigrette
Phase 3

1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2.5T xylitol or stevia equivalent
1 T chipotle powder
2 tsp sea salt
2 T water
1/2 tsp pepper

Blend everything in a blender, then slowly add 1/2 cup grapeseed oil while the blender is running. This will emulsify the dressing. Taste and add more chipotle powder if you want, or sweetener. Pour into a jar, add 1/2 tsp dried oregano and shake to mix. Allow the dressing to sit in the fridge for a few hours before serving.
