I hear people love to eat nachos while watching the super bowl. So what better time for me to add this recipe since the super bowl will be on this Sunday. Why have the same salsa with your nachos all the time when you can step out of the box and try something new. This dip/sauce is also great to pour over bean burritos!
Regarding heat level of this dip....even though the name indicates that it will be really spicy it's not. So please don't skip trying this recipe because you may have adults or children in your family who don't like spicy foods. Frank's red hot sauce is used in the making of this dip but once the salsa and mayo is added to it it does mellow out the heat. Of course, if you like your dip with heat you can always add a bit of cayenne pepper to it. Either way your really going to enjoy it.
I came up with this recipe after falling in love with Isa Chandra’s Red Hot Tahini Dressing which she used in her Hoppin John recipe. I’m still addicted to it.
1/2 cup hot tahini sauce (recipe below)
1/2 cup vegenaise (or recipe below)
1/2 cup chipotle salsa
Combine dip ingredients above into a clear glass bowl; stir to combine. Garnish with green onions and cilantro.
Red Hot Tahini:
1/4 cup tahini
1/4 cup water
2 1/2 Tbsp Louisiana Hot Sauce (like Frank's Red Hot)

1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
