Chipotle's Honey Vinaigrette Recipe Is No Longer A Secret (And Here's What's In It)
By Kelly Douglas
There are several Chipotle copycat recipes on the web that you can recreate at home to satisfy your cravings and save money. However, you no longer need a copycat recipe for the chain's honey vinaigrette, as one employee leaked the original recipe on TikTok to celebrate Chipotle meeting a donation goal.
Per the viral TikTok video, which reveals the recipe with the exact proportions of the ingredients, the vinaigrette consists of red wine vinegar, honey, canned chipotle peppers (to replace Chipotle's adobo marinade), salt, and water. Add in oil as you blend the vinaigrette, and top it off with black pepper and oregano once combined.
The honey vinaigrette will take only a few minutes to be prepared and will have the exact delectably complex flavors you get when you order the item at Chipotle. The employee who leaked the recipe on TikTok said he "could bathe in this stuff," and you may feel the same way once you whip up the vinaigrette on your own.
