  • 1 tablespoon buttermilk
  • 1 chipotle chile in adobo sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Specialized Hardware

  • Immersion blender
ACTIVE TIME: 10 minutes
TOTAL TIME: 1 day 11 minutes

Procedure

  • Put the heavy cream in a 16-ounce microwave-safe glass jar. Microwave on high until the cream is just under 100ºF, 30 to 40 seconds. Add the buttermilk, close the jar, and store in a warm place for 24 hours. The cream will have thickened to the consistency of thin yogurt.
  • Add the chipotle chile and salt, and process with an immersion blender, in the jar, until smooth, approximately 20 seconds. Refrigerate until ready to use.
