With a spicy and smooth flavour that goes great with meat, cheese and salads Chipotle Mayonnaise is a must have in your sauce collection.
Why make your own Chipotle Mayonnaise
There are many good chipotle mayonnaise recipes on the market but the reason I recommend making your own is that you can control the texture, spice and flavours to match your tastes and the dishes you are making. You can also add some extras with ease to give you chipotle mayonnaise an added twist. For example just adding some garlic salt will give you a lovely garlic chipotle mayonnaise.
