I love Subway but being allergic to eggs, I can’t have most of their delicious sauces, especially the renowned Subway chipotle sauce. This is my husband’s favorite subway sandwich sauce! 

Having heard so many people raving about it, I decided to make an eggless copycat version of it.

Ingredients and Alternatives

Ranch – I searched long and hard for a vegan ranch but couldn’t find one. So, I settled for this eggless one – Three Cheese Ranch* or make your own using my eggless ranch recipe.

Mayo – Use full fat vegan mayo* for the best taste. If you are not vegan or allergic to eggs like me, feel free to use regular mayo.

Chipotle peppers in adobo sauce *- You should be able to get these at any supermarket. 

Chipotle peppers come from red jalapenos, and sometimes also from ripe green jalapenos. They are made by putting the jalapenos through a drying and smoking process, during which most of the heat is still retained.

The heat level of chipotle peppers is labelled as medium heat. To give you a better idea, here is a comparison: Thai red peppers have a Scoville Heat Units between 50,000 to 100,000 and chipotle peppers are rated between 5,000 to 10,000 Scoville units.

Others – White vinegar, sugar, onion powder, garlic powder
