1small clove ofGarlic,minced & smoothed with the blade of your knife (optional)
In a small mixing bowl combine 1 cup mayo, 1 tbsp chipotle paste, the juice of half a lime and a small minced cloves of garlic (optional). Taste test for spice and add more chipotle paste as needed.
Cover and store in the fridge or serve up right away!
a) Mayonnaise - You can make the chipotle mayo from scratch and make homemade mayo if you fancy! If you're buying it from the store get a quality brand and make sure it's full fat.b) Chipotle Paste - This is widely available in the UK. It's great because it's got a really deep, condensed flavour and is packed with other goodies alongside the chipotle chilli. I find 1.5 tbsp hits the sweet spot, but just work to preference.c) Chipotle paste substitute - If you can't find chipotle paste you can use Chipotle Chilis in Abodo Sauce. Either blend up 1-2 of the actual chilis, or just spoon in some of the sauce. If at all weary just start with a small amount and work your way up. You can also use chipotle powder. In my experience this has less flavour and varies A LOT in spice level. Again, just work to preference.d) Storage - This will keep fine tightly covered in the fridge for around a week.e) Calories - Based on the whole recipe divided by 8.
