Chipotle anything is wonderful.
This versatile sauce/mayonnaise will be a great addition to your condiments
Not only is it a smoky dipping sauce for your shrimp, it's also a great sandwich spread.
Have a can of chipotles in adobo? Let's get going...
The ingredients are similar to a basic mayonnaise
You'll need some eggs, a can of chipotles in adobo, oil, salt, and garlic.
Simple and easy peasy.
Place the contents of the can of Chipotle Peppers in Adobo in a blender and puree
Sieve the puree to remove the chile skins and seeds and reserve the remaining puree
In the meantime, saute the garlic is some of the oil
Now to make the mayonnaise.
Add some puree to a food processor or blender, add the eggs and garlic.
Process while slowly adding the oil to make a smooth emulsion.
I decided at the last minute to add some dried oregano. Glad I did.
Ready to use as a dipping sauce or sandwich spread.
You'll love it, trust me
The only change I made to the recipe was to add a teaspoon of oregano.
Next time I'll also amp up the amount of puree I use, I like mine a little spicier.
