Chipotle Aioli Dip

This Chipotle Aioli recipe is easy to make and works well as a smokey tasty dip or sauce.

There is a great restaurant in town that used to serve yucca fries with a chipotle aioli dip. Something I have never seen served anywhere else. They no longer have yucca fries but still serve the chipotle aioli dip which is now paired with sweet potato fries.

I decided to try to make this dip myself. I am familiar with canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce from a great pasta dish my sister used to make. Maybe I’ll ask her if she will give me that recipe for another post.

Anyway I thought I could combine some of the chipotles, some of the adobo sauce and some mayo and go from there. It should come as no surprise to you as nothing is ever new, I found several recipes on the web with these same two ingredients. The one additional ingredient that I thought it needed was some citrus for balance and consistency. I decided to go with lime but I think lemons would also do the trick.

I served the dip with raw baby carrots and zucchini and some baked sweet potato fries.

It turned out great. Everyone loved it and I’m sure I’ll make it again.

    Ummm, this sounds so yummy. My new favorite dip is equal parts light mayo and fat free Fage yogurt. You can season it with just about anything. I usually use some Mrs Dash and some type of season salt. It’s great on fish, burgers, veggies, chips, etc. I try to tell myself it’s healthy because of the yogurt!

    • Hi Marie,
      You may want to try substituting your light mayo and greek yogurt in this recipe. I think it would totally work and make it a little more healthy. In fact, I think I’m going to try it.
