Try this Chipotle Aioli sauce anytime you need a smoky, spicy heat! It’s ideal for burgers, fries, veggies, and more.


  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped chipotle pepper in adobo sauce
  • 1 garlic clove, grated
  • ½ cup high quality mayonnaise
  • ⅛ teaspoon cumin
  • ⅛ teaspoon kosher salt


  1. Use a large knife to finely mince the chipotle peppers, then use the side of the knife to grind them into a paste as finely as possible. 
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together 2 tablespoons of the mashed chipotle peppers with the grated garlic, mayonnaise, cumin, and kosher salt. (Taste and if desired, you can add more chipotle for an even spicier kick.)
  3. For a perfectly creamy sauce, use a spatula to press the sauce through a fine mesh strainer. Stores up to 2 weeks refrigerated.
