Southwest Chipotle Sauce

I have posted this after a Facebook conversation with some old colleagues at Beaumont School (happy birthday Danny).  A versatile sauce which goes well with most subs, sandwiches and wraps.  Add some fresh Jalapenos or hotter chillies for a kick!

The chipotle in adobo (adobo = sauce/seasoning or marinade) is a specialist ingredient and many of the major supermarkets are selling it in their bigger stores now.  If you can't find it then use the following link to go to an excellent online supplier called MexGrocer - MexGrocer.


• Mayonnaise - 250 ml

• Dijon mustard - 1 tbsp

• Lime juice - 3 tbsp

• Chipotle chilli in adobo (pureed) - 2 tbsp

• Garlic (pureed) - 3 cloves

• Salt - to taste


1. Combine mayonnaise, mustard, lime juice, chipotle and garlic.

2. Add salt to taste

3.  Store in an airtight container in the fridge

You can thin this down with a little white wine vinegar and use as a salad dressing but be careful not to use too much vinegar.
