Chipotle Mayo is the perfectly spicy sauce to top all your favorite sandwiches, paninis, and fish tacos! This semi-homemade sauce has a little kick but isn't overly spicy!
I stumbled upon a thing. Homemade Chipotle Mayo. Chipotle Mayo is actually just regular old mayo all jazzed up with extra flavor but it may just become your new favorite condiment! Good enough to eat with a spoon, although not strictly advised (wink, wink). Not overly spicy, it has just a kick of flavor to make your mouth happy!
What is Chipotle Mayo For?
Need some ideas for how to use this delicious sauce? I've got you covered:
- Deli-meat sandwiches and paninis, turkey or ham, and cheese go from ordinary to extraordinary!
- Take grilled hamburgers to the next level!
- Add to grilled cheese sandwiches for an extra kick!
- Dipping french fries sounds like an excellent idea.
- Oh, on a BLT... that would be amazing, right??
- And last but not least Chipotle Chicken Cheesesteaks!
Need even more whacky (or not) ideas? How about:
- On eggs
- Or in deviled eggs
- Hot dog condiment of your dreams...
- Pizza dip?
- Dip for chicken fingers = no brainer!
- Anything you'd put regular mayo on, obviously.
Ingredients in Semi-Homemade Chipotle Mayo
- The main ingredient: your favorite store-bought or homemade mayo, I used store-bought.
- Since you're making this sauce yourself, you can also ensure it's gluten-free (if that's important to you), since you know what you'll be putting in it.
- If you also need dairy-free, Sir Kensington's and Primal Kitchen both make a dairy-free mayo that is certified gluten-free. Thrive Market also sells a vegan, egg-free mayo.
- Adobo sauce from a can of Chipotle Peppers in Adobo: I've used this ingredient so many times on the blog like in this favorite blender salsa made with canned tomatoes, Chicken Tinga Tostadas, in gluten-free chicken chili, and even for this delicious southwest bbq chicken salad!
- Spices: smoked paprika, garlic powder, chili powder, salt & pepper
- Lemon Juice
It's So Easy to Make!

Storing Homemade Chipotle Mayo
Put the chipotle mayo in a small airtight container like a mason jar and refrigerate. Try to use it up within about a week. It may last longer, so use your own judgment on appearance, smell, and/or taste... but when in doubt, throw it out.
