Why you’ll love Chipotle Mayo

Chipotle Mayo is actually just regular old mayo all jazzed up with extra flavor BUT, it may just become your new favorite condiment! Good enough to eat with a spoon, although not strictly advised. Not overly spicy, it has just a kick of flavor to make your mouth happy! Try it with Air Fryer Sweet Potato Fries!

What is Chipotle?

A chipotle pepper is a dry, smoked jalapeno pepper. They are most commonly made from red jalapenos. However, you can also use ripe green jalapenos as well. Chipotle peppers are added to any dish that could use a smoky flavor with a little heat.

What’s the difference between aioli and mayonnaise?

Although aioli and mayonnaise are both creamy emulsions, aioli is made from garlic and olive oil while mayo is made from egg yolks and canola oil. The final result may look similar but the two sauces have distinctly different flavors. Nowadays, the word aioli is pretty much synonymous with mayo, and is often just a simple mayonnaise (store-bought or homemade) that is flavored generously with garlic—a nod to its origins.
