Homemade Chipotle Mayonaise

Mayonaise has to be my third favorite condiment. Hot Sauce and Salsa are #1 and #2 of course. My mayonaise obsession goes way back to the days when our dad would cook fried camp potatoes and slather them with regular mayo. We would sit by the fire and wait to eat. Now that I know the recipe, it seems so simple, but back then, camp potatoes were my all time favorite food. Anyways, on to the mayo. Mayonaise is surprisingly easy to make, just make sure you measure correctly, otherwise it can get nasty.

Chipotle mayonnaise

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 rounded teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup light olive oil
  • 1 chipotle chile

1. Put lemon juice, egg and salt in a blender. Slowly start blending the ingredients, adding oil little by little, until the mayonnaise is thick and you have added all the oil.

2. Add the chipotle chile and blend in. Makes three-fourths cup. ENJOY!

If your looking for a simple taco topping and don’t want to go through the labor of making the mayo, I can highly recommend mixing Chiptole Tabaso and Regualr Mayo together. It makes a brilliantly creamy taco topping that will not over power your tacos.
