Chipotle Mayo

Rated as 4.65 out of 5 Stars

"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."

Excellent! I added 1 clove of garlic and a few tsp. of lime juice. I used Hellman't light mayo and it was oh so good! This recipe is a definite keeper!

I've made a variation on this for years...I add 2 cloves of garlic and some fresh lime's awesome.

FABULOUS!!! I added two cloves of garlic, three teaspoons of lime juice and cilantro. I even added an extra pepper! Looking forward to serving with the Carne Asada Tacos tonight!! .....okay,...

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...

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 ...

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'...

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...

Love this recipe, and I use it all the time, on all kinds of things. As a spread on my sandwich, on chicken and steaks, pork chops... yum yum. bet it would even taste good as a dip.

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.
