Recipe: Chipotle Mayo

This recipe for Chipotle Mayo is a fantastic way to dress up sandwiches, subs and burgers. It’s also fabulous in tuna or chicken salad… just use it in place of plain mayo. It’s super easy to make and requires only a few ingredients.

I use Hellman’s Mayonnaise… I think it produces the best results… you can use another brand, but I would recommend that you don’t use Miracle Whip or other salad dressings… the results are usually runny and the taste isn’t the same. Since there are few ingredients… you want them to be a good quality so you get the best result.

This mayo is a bit spicy… if you prefer foods less spicy… start with one chipotle chili and ½ tablespoon adobo sauce… and taste it… add more to your taste.

You can find chipotle chilies in adobo sauce in jars or cans in the international aisle in the supermarket.

I use my mini food processor for this… it’s perfect for whipping up a batch quickly.

Love this idea of using the chipotle peppers in adobo. When I open a can, I never know what to do with all of them, as most recipes call for just a little.
