How to make a Chipotle Mayonnaise
As always, canned chipotles in adobo might be hard to find in your local supermarket, but believe me they are there. If your store has a Mexican specialties section look around where the canned green chilies are and they should be near by. If you don't have a Mexican specialties section in your store, try looking where all the salsa and taco stuff is. I've canvased a good amount of the stores in the capital region and I've found that more often than not, they do have canned chipotles in adobo.
As far as what you can use this recipe with, you can literally replace this with any condiment, including mayo. I like dipping fries in this and in my next post, you'll see that I use this with a salmon salad sandwich.
1 cup mayonnaise
2 to 3 chipotles canned chipotles in adobo sauce
1 to 2 tablespoons lime juice, or to taste
1 tablespoon adobo sauce from the can, or to taste
Salt and pepper to taste
1. Add mayo to a food processor along with lime juice and one pepper. Process thoroughly. Taste the mayonnaise.
2. After tasting the mayonnaise, add the adobo and other chipotles until you like the heat of the sauce, processing after each addition. Add the salt and pepper to taste and mix.
3. Reserve the sauce for your desired uses.
