Let’s talk about what you need to make this recipe!

Mayonnaise – we are making this extra easy by using premade mayonnaise

Diced Chipotle in Adobo – I love to use the jars of pre-diced peppers with the sauce because it is so easy to use and store in the refrigerator.

Lime Juice

Garlic Powder

Salt

Making the Aioli

All you need to make this homemade aioli is mix everything together and chill!

I recommend chilling for at least 30 minutes, ideally an hour, for the flavors to meld together.

If you are using the sauce as part of a larger recipe, such as for a burger, I recommend adding an additional 1 Tablespoon of chipotle in adobo and an additional 1/2 teaspoon lime juice. The stronger flavor is best in circumstances like this to stand up to the other flavors. I found that the stronger flavors were overpowering when you use the aioli where it is more of the star, like for a fry dipping sauce or on a taco.

Instructions

  • Mix all ingredients together. Let chill for flavors to meld, at least 30 minutes. Season to taste.

Notes

  1. I like to use a chipotle in adobo that already is mixed with diced chipotle. If you buy canned chipotles that are whole, diced up the peppers and mix with the sauce before using.
This sauce ratio is great when it is a focal point, such as for dipping fries. If using as part of a larger recipe with many other ingredients, such as a spread for a burger, sandwich, etc, I recommend adding the following to give it a stronger flavor:
  • Additional 1 Tablespoon chipotle in adobo
  • Additional 1/2 teaspoon lime juice
