Recipe for: Chipotle Aioli

TOTAL TIME: 10 min
1 cup

As promised, here is a wonderful and versatile sauce/aioli that pairs perfectly with my fried green tomatoes that I showcased yesterday on Pretty Tasty Things. This aioli can be served with a number of other dishes such as crab cakes, fish tacos, chicken, BLT sandwiches, pretty much anything. It can even be modified in a number of ways and altered to your tastebuds. It’s pretty perfect though without having to be overly spicy. It’s simple to make and can be done a day in advance so the flavors can marry in the fridge. I’m really happy I stumbled upon this recipe and I’m even more happy I can share it with you!

1 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons finely chopped chives
2 minced garlic cloves
2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon chipotle chile powder
Salt and pepper

1. Prep all the ingredients. Chop the chives, mince the garlic cloves and squeeze the lime.

2. Combine ingredients. After all the ingredients are prepped, place everything into a bowl.

3. Mix ingredients together. Stir all the ingredients in the bowl until nicely combined. Cover and chill in refrigerator until ready to serve. I used little individual condiment serving cups. These stainless steel ones are from Crate and Barrel and are only $.95 each.

  • I was wondering where you found the little condiment cups when I was looking at the photos yesterday. For about 2 seconds I thought you may have pilfered them from a restaurant haha – I might have to head over to Crate and Barrel for some of those!

      LOL! Me, steal? Never! I actually registered them for our wedding! Not only they were cheap, but they were free for me :) I love them. They’re just too cute and keeps the sauce away from the food. It was a great find!

      Oh I didn’t think about salmon and eggplant! Great suggestion!
