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.
- 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.
