Chipotle Aioli is a versatile condiment with a hint of smokiness and heat from the chipotle. It is ridiculously easy and takes about 5 minutes!
What is Chipotle in Adobo?
Chipotle peppers are ripened, red, jalapeño peppers, that have been smoked and dried.
Chipotle in adobo sauce is taking those peppers and rehydrating. Then they are soaked in a sauce of tomato, vinegar, garlic and spices.
It is available canned, in most specialty grocers in the US. The sauce is more smoky, than it is hot, depending on the individual pepper you pick out of the can.
Chipotles can vary widely, in their heat levels, because jalapenos range from medium heat to very hot.
Making chipotle in adobo, at home, is easy, once the peppers are smoked. They don’t even need to be fully dried, if you are only using the peppers in adobo sauce.
What you need

- lime juice
How to make it
- Place all ingredients, except the oil in food processor or blender.
