low carb recipe



Mayonnaise- This is the body of the sauce and provides a creamy texture that makes this dish so crave-worthy. – Sour cream- Adds a touch of tanginess to help balance the richness of the mayo. – Chili powder- Gives some heat to each bite without being overwhelming. – Cumin- An earthy and warm finishing note. – Garlic powder- Provides a slightly nutty and sweet flavor to compliment the chili powder and cumin. – Paprika- Adds smokiness and a pop of color to the sauce. – Salt



First, combine the mayonnaise and sour cream in a medium-sized bowl. Stir the two ingredients together until they are fully combined.



Next, add the chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, paprika, and salt to the bowl. Stir until all of the ingredients are fully incorporated and the sauce has a smooth, creamy consistency.



Taste the sauce and adjust the seasonings to your liking. If you prefer a spicier sauce, you can add more chili powder or even a pinch of cayenne pepper. If you prefer a milder sauce, you can reduce the amount of chili powder or omit it entirely.



Once you're happy with the flavor of your Baja sauce, cover the bowl and place it in the refrigerator to chill for at least 30 minutes. This will allow the flavors to meld and intensify.



Add some smoky heat. Add in a teaspoon of the adobo sauce to add a smoky heat and velvety texture. Adjust the amount you use to reach your preferred heat level. – Freshen it up. To give this Baja sauce a fresher bite, add in some finely diced veggies like jalapenos or red onion. – Bump up the fat content. If you're eating a low carb diet, you often need a way to increase your daily fat macros. You can easily turn this sauce into a savory fat bomb by blending half of an avocado into it when you're combining the rest of the ingredients.
