Chipotle Mayonnaise

While I had some oil heated for tostones last week, I also fried up a batch of yuca fries for further Mojo dipping. The fried yuca went pretty well with the Mojo, but what I really wanted for dipping was this chipotle mayo.

Chipotle mayo is a pretty hot condiment, and I'll say its popularity is well-deserved. With just a few ingredients, you can create a complex mixture of spicy, cool, earthy, and smoky that becomes an excellent spread for sandwiches and burgers, or a dip for fries, chips, and veggies.

Of course, you can go with straight mayo and chipotles here, but I gave my recipe some sour cream and lime juice, which added a tang that gave this already excellent sauce a nice extra layer of flavor.
