  • Homemade Chipotle Mayo

    So I want to make my own homemade chipotle mayo (I have a serious addiction to the stuff at Red Robin, but I know it's no good for me)

    what brand of chipotles in adobo sauce is the best to get? I was looking at La Costena, but it has soybean oil *sigh*

    how long will the mayo last once made (barring me not sitting down & totally gnoshing on it, lol)? Do you think the chipotle addition will help it keep a bit longer?

    Add a tablespoon or 2 of whey to your mayo. let it sit on the counter for 6 to 8 hours then refrigerate. It will last a lot longer.

        The water that is on top of your yogurt is whey.

          Oh! I have that in abundance. My daughter eats Greek yogurt & there's always a little when I open a new container for her. I always poured it out cuz I didn't know what it was.

            I used to buy La Costeņa, but had not checked the oil. You can buy powdered chipotle from Penzey's Spice stores or their web site.

              I make chipotle mayo on a weekly basis (it would last longer, but my boyfriend scarfs it, and it keeps him from eating the regular mayo our roommate always has), and I just use the tinned peppers in adobo, figuring a dash of soybean oil is better than the mayo being entirely made from it. I also throw in some smoked spanish paprika for extra smokey goodness, and a tbs of cheap, vinegary hot sauce like Frank's, to bring the front of the tongue heat. It's like creamy, smokey, spicy crack!

              I may try that whey thing, that sounds cool.

                whey thing adds extra protein to boot, yeah?

                one of the latino stores I was at today had 3 brands of chipotles in adobo. I think I will go back & choose the lesser of the evils

                  Sally Fallon's "Nourishing Traditions" book tells you how to extract whey if you want more quantity. I use it for making all kinds of stuff that provides probiotics in your diet. You should strain your whey through some cheese cloth to get as much of the solids out as possible. You may be able to find the instructions of the Weston Price Foundations website but I have not looked for it there since I have the book. BTW when I just need a tablespoon or so I just carefully use what is in the yogurt container.

                    Is that the recipe on Food Renegade?? I love that stuff!!! (1/2 olive oil 1/2 coconut oil) I got some dried chilis carribe in the mexican section of the store & used those. Seriously good with canned tuna!!! Or with sweet potato fries like in the recipe. I don't know how long it keeps as it gets eaten quickly

                      You can get ground chipotle from your grocery store, I believe McCormick's carries it. Just make your mayo as normal and then add a pinch of the powder.

                      I refrigerate my mayo and have eaten it after 8 days with no ill effects. A good tip is to first beat your eggs with the vinegar or lemon juice and let that sit for five minutes. The acid will take care of any potentially harmful bacteria in the egg.

                        Just wanted to update my chipotle mayo quest.

                        bought some safflower oil mayo last week and a can of san marco chipotles in adobo. Hubby helped me make it this morning. I got it to where it tastes just like Red Robin (source of my addiction), only I know mine is 100x healthier!

                        It's so good, I'm going to have my work cut out on monitoring intake. Who needs potato chips when there's cucumbers & chipotle mayo in the house! It made a killer salad dressing tonight, too.

                          I doubt that liquid whey adds a significant amount of protein since this calls for liquid whey rather than dried whey protein concentrate.
