1 cup of mayonnaise (regular or lite is fine)
1 whole dried Chipotle pepper, without the stem
½ teaspoon of garlic powder
½ teaspoon of smoked paprika
Juice from one lime
Pinch of salt
Grind the Chipotle pepper to a fine powder, seeds and all. Whisk the powder together with all the remaining ingredients in a small bowl. Place the Chipotle Mayo into a small jar and chill for about 4 hours. This Chipotle Mayo will just get better as it ages. If you are planning a weekend barbeque, prepare the Chipotle Mayo about 3 days in advance for the best flavor. This will keep in refrigerator for months, if you can make it last that long. Enjoy!
