  • 1 cup Greek yogurt (or mayonnaise)
  • 6 tablespoons fresh lime juice (3 ounces)
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons taco or hot sauce


  • In a small bowl, whisk together all ingredients until smooth.
  • Refrigerate leftovers.


  • Leftover dressing can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. I use this handy bottle for leftover dressings.
  • Use this dressing on my Copycat Chipotle Chicken Burrito Bowl.
  • Can be used as a dipping sauce for burgers, chicken and fries.
