    This chipotle mayo was a big hit here. If you like spice, I can see this chipotle mayonnaise being used on sandwiches that you want to perk up a bit. I very rarely use an entire can of chipotle chiles in adobo sauce. I take individual chipotle chiles, put them on plastic wrap with some adobo sauce, and wrap them up individually. I always have a bag of them in the freezer. That makes this mayo very easy to throw together. I served it with crispy chicken carnitas with corn tortillas, sliced avocado, black beans, and sour cream.

    This chipotle mayonnaise is a great addition to our condiments and can add a subtle, smoky taste to anything. We used it on burgers and turkey sandwiches and found it made a great deviled egg. I was able to use my large 14-cup food processor with no problem to "blitz" the chipotle chiles. It took about 5 minutes total to make this recipe with most of the time being used to strain the blitzed chiles.
