This recipe is super easy with a food processor! Use this mayo on cold cut sandwiches or mixed with canned fish. Don't use Miracle Whip or salad dressing for this. Neither one qualifies as mayonnaise and are not as thick as the real thing, which will make your result much runnier. You can get the chipotle chiles in adobo sauce at a supermarket with a good variety of more authentic Mexican items. They are either canned or bottled.

The chipotle was completely overpowering for me in terms of spice and just a dominating flavor. I kept adding more and more mayo to the mix hoping to dilute the chipotle to a tolerable level until I used the entire jar. I put the resulting mix on one sandwich before throwing the whole thing out. Read More

Gotta love how people review a recipe, call it excellent, and give it only 3 or 4 stars. Does it have to cook itself to qualify for 5 stars?? Also, most of the people that give less that 5 stars vary the ingredients greatly. What's up with that? Read More

This is no doubt the best condiment. I make it with fat free mayo and I credit it with helping me lose over 20 pounds this year! I put it on everything you don't need a lot of it since its so spicy and with the ff mayo it is has virtually no calories! Read More

Wow what a good idea! I will continue making this to put on anything I can think of! Yes it's got some heat (which I loved!) so beware. I did add the lime juice and garlic per other reviewers' suggestions but I'm not sure I think it was necessary. Ended up adding a pinch of sugar too. Served it on Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers from this site and had the most amazing southwestern-flavored meal! I wish I could give this more stars it's so good! I'll figure out a way to make this the next time I have company (maybe mixed with sour cream instead of mayo as one layer of a 7-layer dip??). Read More

Excellent dressing! This was delicious on jazzed up BLT's made with pepper bacon avocado and swiss. I used the leftovers the next night for dipping Old Bay Steamed Spiced Shrimp. Thanks for sharing! Read More

Very easy and tastes great. I doubled it but didn't add the extra tablespoons of chipotle as it was spicy enough. Thanks for the great condiment. Read More
