Chipotle Mayonnaise Recipe

Chipotle mayonnaise 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.
