Chipotle Maple Mayonnaise

Chipotle Maple Mayonnaise

Chipotle Maple Mayonnaise is a tangy spicy sauce that adds an awesome kick to all kinds of dishes – french fries, hamburger, chicken wings, veggies, soups – it goes way beyond traditional mayo

Chipotle Maple Mayonnaise may sound like mayonnaise, but as you see it served in the photo, it is actually a sauce that kicks up many different dishes big time. In the photo, I’m serving it on miniature crabcakes (from Costco). It’s also great on burgers, sandwiches, fries, veggies, lots of things. It has an amazing spicy tangy flavor. My initial thoughts after trying this is that it’s perfect as a wing sauce. If you like your wing sauce super spicy, I’d probably double the chipotle powder (to taste); but this was a good level of spicy-tangy for me. The maple flavor is subtle; you may not realize it has maple syrup in it.

This is not as thick and spreadlike as typical mayo; unlike mayo it can be poured but is somewhat thick. If you want it thicker and more like mayo, just cut the lime juice in half. It will be a little less tangy but still very tasty and more like a spread. Also the flavors blend more as they sit.

This will keep a few months in the fridge, so you may want to make a bigger batch and use it on sandwiches, omelettes, game day snacks, whatever. For me this is a real keeper because I always have the ingredients and it takes 5 minutes to whip up something that can add special pizazz to all kinds of snacks, appetizers, and main dishes. Try it and let me know how you like it.
