Here is an REALLY easy and fast one. And a great one! Believe it or not, we used to serve this at the Four Seasons Boston, and people went wild over it! Imagine that…
Chipotles are smoked jalapeno peppers. Normally, when we buy them, they come in little cans of ‘chipotle in adobo’ which is chipotle peppers in a smoky, spicy, tomato based sauce. Over the last few years, chipotles have taken the culinary work by storm! Everyone seems to love anything with chipotle in it, and for good reason. They’re delicious.
Prep time: 5 minutes
Makes 2 cups
1/2 a can of chipotle in adobo
zest of 1 orange
2 cups heavy prepared mayonnaise (like hellmann’s)
In a blender, puree the chipotle in adobo with 1/4 cup mayo and zest. Take the puree and work it into the rest of the mayo. You’re done.
Use this for a dipping sauce, on sandwiches, for dipping shellfish, on crab cakes, to go with beef, on burgers… whatever. You cannot go wrong.
