  • 1 cup mayonnaise (or plain Greek yogurt)
  • 2 chipotles in adobo
  • 1 tablespoon adobo sauce
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • pinch of salt
  • squeeze of lime


  • Start by de-stemming and de-seeding the chipotles in adobo.  Add them to a blender or food processor along with 1 cup mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon adobo sauce, 2 peeled garlic cloves, a pinch of salt, and a squeeze of lime.
  • Combine well and take a taste for seasoning, adding more salt and lime if you want.  You can also quickly add some more heat by adding more adobo sauce. 
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge. 


Keep in mind that if you are substituting Greek yogurt for the mayo then you will get an upgrade in flavor if you add a small amount of fat.  Heavy cream, Mexican Crema, or mayo are all good options to add to the Greek yogurt.   For example, 1 cup Greek yogurt and 1 tablespoon heavy cream would be a good combo to consider.
