Chipotle Lime Mayo Dipping Sauce


Chipotle Lime Mayo and Dipping Sauce is great to use when making salads, sandwich, sauces, dips and dressings the perfect amount of heat to chicken, burgers, fries and more. Plus it's simply delicious and easy to make.



Ingredients

1 tablespoon lime juice (about 1 lime)
1 teaspoon lime zest  (about 1 lime)
2 chipotle peppers, chopped
1 roasted garlic clove, smashed and chopped
1 teaspoon smoked paprika½ teaspoon sea salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
1 1/4 cups Kraft Mayo



Direction


In a food processor, puree the 1/4 cup Kraft Mayo, lime juice, lime zest, chipotle pepper, roasted garlic, sea salt, smoked paprika and pepper until you have a very smooth mixture.

Add mixture to 1 cup Kraft Mayo and mix well. 

This mayo is fantastic served right away, but I like to let this sit in the fridge overnight to let the flavors meld.   It is even better the next day.
