I’ve come to learn that there a few things that can make anything taste good.  Garlic and onions, for one. Cayenne pepper, for another.  And chocolate.
I recently discovered that chipolte is one of these things. As in chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. As in this:
At a family get-together, my grandpa made this incredible chipotle mayonnaise.  Yes, I like mayo.  I didn’t eat it for 4-5 years when I saw how it was made, but I’m over it now and I like it again.  Judge away.
Back to the chipotle.  My grandpa said all he did was mix regular mayo (I use fat free but don’t tell Sam) with some of these peppers.  Easy.  So easy that I tried it within a week.  And… mine was just as good.  And the best thing about making your own chipotle mayo is you can make it as spicy or weak sauce as you want.
Great on leftover beer chicken sandwiches and burgers!
Ingredients
  • Mayo (full fat, low fat, fat free, homemade)
  • Chipotle peppers in adobo sauce

Combine 3/4 cup of mayo, 1 chipotle pepper, and 1 Tbsp of the adobo sauce  in a food processor.  Blend until smooth.  Add pepper/sauce to taste.

  1. yep! it's good in coleslaw too! Dutchie and I actually made the EXACT same "Smoked Chile Coleslaw" this Sunday evening for the cookout.
    She used the powder and I used the canned. We found the slaw was good on hotdogs & smoked sausages.
