Chipotle Aioli is an easy aioli sauce recipe for dipping or spreading. Also known as chipotle mayo, make it in just 5 minutes and use on everything!

Easy, creamy chipotle aioli is a quick and zesty sauce perfect for dipping or spreading on sandwiches. Chipotle peppers in adobo sauce add heat while the mayonnaise is slightly sweet. This perfect combination is also known as chipotle mayo.

Condiments can easily make or break a meal. Sauces should complement, not take over the flavor profile. Otherwise you’d just need a bowl of sauce. Gross.

Aioli sauces are the perfect way to do this. If you make the quick version using premade mayonnaise, they take only minutes and amplify the whole dish.

What is aioli? Aioli translates to “garlic and oil” and is usually emulsified with egg. Is this starting to sound familiar? Emulsified oil and egg is… drumroll please… MAYONNAISE.

You can make aioli from scratch or you can combine your desired ingredients and flavors with premade mayonnaise. So easy! Although making mayonnaise is also pretty simple.

So simple that I’ve taught my niece how to make her own in a blender. I love making my own, it has so much more flavor, especially when you use a good quality olive oil. For this recipe, my flavor of choice is chipotle.

Chipotle peppers are pretty spicy! Therefore, depending on how many peppers you throw into the blend, you can also adjust the heat of your sauce. Some dishes, like my Spicy Chicken Sandwich, are defined by the chipotle aioli and certain level of heat.

The adobo sauce that chipotle peppers are typically canned in also adds a layer of smoky flavor sophistication. Even if you don’t use it in the aioli, store it in an airtight container for later and use it in Mexican dishes or salad dressing. It is so tasty!

Make easy chipotle aioli sauce and store it an airtight container for up to a week in the refrigerator.

Tool for making easy chipotle aioli:

Mini Food Processor– I use this thing daily! It is by far my most used kitchen appliance, it is small and I throw all the parts into the dishwasher, well except the base and cord, of course!

Ingredients
  • 1 7 ounce can chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice

  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
Instructions
  1. In a small food processor (or blender), puree chipotle peppers and adobo sauce for 30 seconds. It should be thick and paste like, it will not be smooth. Transfer to a seperate bowl. 

  2. Without cleaning the food processor,  add remaining ingredients including lime juice, mayonnaise, cilantro (optional) fine sea salt and ground black pepper. 

  3. Add 1 tablespoon of chipotle peppers at a time until the desired taste is achieved. I use the whole can, however I like things spicy. You are much better off adding in small amounts and taste testing along the way.

Basically my favorite condiment ever! i cannot wait to try it with the spicy chicken sandwich next – holy cow that looks good together!!!

    Jessica at Savory Experiments

    I should be everyone’s favorite condiment!

Jane Saunders

How lovely. I’ve never attempted to make my own mayo, but i should get around to it. Like you, for now ‘ll settle for premade and add to it. I’m imagining this dip with crisp onion rings. it’s a very happy thought.

    Jessica at Savory Experiments

    YES! So good with onion rings. My other favorite is fried cheese curds.

Matt

Sauce came out a lot thinner than i expected. Still tasty thoUgh

    Hi Matt, thanks for stopping by! I’m trying to figure out why that was. Did you by any chance use a light mayo instead of full fat or was your can of chiles more saucy than usual?

Aoli is very popular here in Australia. I’m sure this would impress my friends, and so easily too!
Thanks for such a simple way to spice up a popular classic.

Sandi

Chipotle is one of my favorites and this looks so creamy and delicious. I love the idea of drizzling this sauce on burgers.

Yum! I was looking for a Chipotle ranch for a grilled chicken gyro. So glad I found your recipe. We added a little ranch seasoning and probably used half the pepper. Everyone loves it and now we are trying to figure out what else we can make to use the rest of sauce. The possibilities are endless!

    Thanks for stopping by to let us know, Jodi! Adding ranch is an excellent idea! We use our Chipotle as a dipping sauce for potato wedges, fries, onion rings, on burgers, hot dogs or even just for potato chips!

Barbara Bianchi

I will definitely make this……thanks
