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.
Without cleaning the food processor, add remaining ingredients including lime juice, mayonnaise, cilantro (optional) fine sea salt and ground black pepper.
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.
Refrigerate for a minimum of 30 minutes or until served. You can refrigerate for up to a week in an airtight container.
