Chipotle Mayo

Posted by on Nov 18, 2011 | Comments Off on Chipotle Mayo

1 cup mayo
2 tsps chipotle powder (or less)

  • Mix.


For a fancier version:

Optional add-ins….

2 tsps lime juice
1 TBSP finely chopped cilantro
2 cloves of garlic, minced or crushed (or 1/8 tsp garlic powder)
1/4 tsp dried oregano
dollop of high quality sour cream



~ Chipotle mayo is a great way to add a smokey, spicy flavor to any meal. Use it any way you’d use regular mayo (on a sandwich, burger, burrito, taco, fish, chicken, as a dip for sweet potato fries or roasted potatoes, chicken salad, egg salad, tempeh salad, etc…)

~ You should be able to find chipotle powder in the spice aisle. It’s got quite a kick to it, so you may want to start off with 1/2 tsp per cup of mayo and work your way up. Using 2 tsps (as we do) yields a pretty spicy spread.
