Every once in a while we need to break away from the three traditional burger condiments of ketchup, mustard, and mayonnaise. When that time comes, you'll want to whip up something with extra zip and spice. Chipotle mayo has the perfect combination of spiciness and tartness to take your burger and fries into tasty Southwestern territory.

  • Yield:4
  • Active time: 5 minutes
  • Total time:5 minutes


  • 4 teaspoons of chipotles in adobo (including sauce), seeded and minced
  • 1/2 cup regular mayonnaise
  • Juice from 1/2 a lime
  • 2 teaspoons of cilantro, chopped


  1. 1.

    Slice the chipotles lengthwise (4 teaspoons is approximately 2 peppers), remove the seeds and chop finely.

    In a blender, combine the chipotles (including a teaspoon of adobo sauce), mayo, lime juice, and cilantro. Blend until smooth. Serve with burgers, fries, or anything you like.
