Does anyone know where I can buy a decent chipolte sauce (non mayonnaise or yogurt) in bulk. I do shrimp tacos roadside and I can't use anything with mayo, eggs, etc.

You'll have to define chipolte sauce. Think about making your own. In Florida I suspect peppers grow year round.

There are different kinds of Chipolte sauces.
Ones with Mayo and/or yogurt or ones that are BBQ Style are the only recipes I know of.
Here's a BBQ style one:
Chipotle Bbq Sauce
Recipe courtesy Sharon Cayton
Show: FoodNation With Bobby Flay
[class="darkgreen"]I N G R E D I E N T S
1 tablespoon canola oil
2 cups diced yellow onion
7 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup ketchup
1 cup chipotle red chile paste, recipe follows
1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup strong coffee
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons kosher salt
[class="darkgreen"]I N S T R U C T I O N S
In a large, heavy saucepan heat the oil over medium heat and add the onion and garlic. Saute until they begin to wilt. Add the ketchup and chile paste and saute for 4 minutes. Add all of the remaining ingredients stir and let simmer for 30 to 40 minutes. As the sauce thickens, stir more often so it does not scorch. Remove the sauce from the heat and allow it to cool. Place the sauce in a blender and puree. Store in the refrigerator.

4 ancho chiles, seeded and stems removed
4 Mexican dried chiles, seeded and stems removed
3 cups chicken stock
1/2 white onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 chipotle peppers, seeded and stems removed

Chipotle (alone) is often assertive. That's why you often find it cut with a cream or additional flavorings (raspberry orange maple).

Test a straight Chipotle sauce before you go buy in bulk. It can easily overpower the poor little shrimp. If it can try a nice lighter green sauce.

Use a can of chipotle in adobo, put it in a blender, then add tom sauce and or paste to thin it out to taste and consistency.

Can you use an 'egg-less' type of mayo?   It would be hard to make your own.

You can do raw fish, but cant have dairy?
Do you have trailer or cart? What do you have to cook on?

I do a fire roasted salsa for my fish tacos, I use jalapeƱos but chipotle could easily be substituted. Let me know if this is something you could use.

Thanks to all who responsed. I have a cart that I work from with several large coolers, and yes I have no problem keeping my shrimp frozen until I cook them. They are all cooked to order. Because of the volume we do I don't want to mess around having to create a sauce. I'm quite capable of coming up with something but what I was really looking for was an acceptable packaged product that i could purchase by the gallon. Anything with mayo is just too iffy because of the Florida heat. I need something that can sit out for a while when I'm busy. BTW the sauce is for shrimp tacos.

as a 'cream' style sauce, I don't see anything available.   but these will let the consumer add a dash or two along with other prepackaged single serve condiments, tarter sauce or mayo.

Thanks, I didn't know they made this. I'll Google it and see who handles it wholesale. I really appreciate your help.

As a consumer, I'm not sure I'd want a Chipolte Sauce on my Shrimp Taco.
I'd prefer something along the lines of a cocktail sauce, salsa, pico de gallo type sauce.

There's a Fiery Foods Show in Albuquerque NM every year. I'm sure you could find what you're looking for there:

You could also buy commercial size catsup or barbeque sauce or even canned tomatoes and blend in a can or more or less of chipotles in adobe.

If the Chipotle is too strong...I'd give something with more of a Florida feel to a Key Lime...Margarita or Mango hot sauce.

I am rather fond of the Tabasco product, and the ones I like more tend to be a LOT more expensive. This is absolutely my favorite (pic on
