Deliciously creamy Chipotle Mayo is quick and easy to make. It’s perfect for adding a smoky, slightly spicy, savory flavor to a variety of dishes! Drizzle it over tacos, spread it on sandwiches and wraps or turn it into a tasty dip for fries, chips, vegetables and more!


  • 1 ½ cup mayonnaise (vegan as desired)*
  • 3 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • 1 ½ tablespoons of the adobo sauce
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • pinch of sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon of lime juice
  • Optional: ¼ teaspoon of lime zest


  1. If you want a less spicy sauce, cut open the chipotle peppers and scrape out the seeds and discard. I rarely do this and just leave them in but it’s up to you.
  2. Add all of the ingredients to a blender or food processor and blend until creamy and only a few lumps remain.
  3. Taste and season with additional salt and pepper as desired. If you want it even spicier, you can also add in more of the adobo sauce.
  4. Serve and enjoy! I love this on tacos and nachos! Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 weeks.


*You can also use plain Greek yogurt – there are some good vegan greek yogurts on the market as well.
