BBQ Secret Sauce – Chipotle Mayo – Take Your BBQ to the Next Level

I’m going to share a little secret with you, just in time for your Memorial Day BBQ,  because that’s the kind of guy I am.

Go to the grocery store.  In the “International” or “Mexican” aisle you will find a can of “chipotles in adobo sauce.”   It is a little can of smoked jalapenos in a red sauce.  Buy it.

Take two of the chipotles (transfer the rest to a glass jar with a screw on lid and store them in the fridge), put them on your cutting board, and mince them to smithereens.  Put two big spoonfuls of mayonnaise in a dish, add the minced chipotles, stir, and voila: chipotle mayo.  Put it on your burgers.   Put it on your grilled chicken sandwhiches.  Put it on your fried eggplant and zucchini.  Put it on your french fries.  It’s a slam dunk.  Just try it – trust me.

You can adjust the spiciness on your own by adding more chipotles, obviously.


EDIT:  Twitter commenter “Mad_Chortler” correctly points out that I am referring to “grilling” not “BBQ’ing” (cooking meats slow and over low heat).  In another twist of English language semantics, we invited people over for a “BBQ” when we grill.  So when I titled this post “BBQ Secret Sauce,” it really should be “Secret Sauce for your BBQ,” where you put it on the things that you grill – not the things that you actually BBQ.  Is anyone confused yet?  The NY Times had a relevant article just a few days ago:

“Barbecue — it is a noun in the South, something a person eats — is known as “low and slow,” cooking at lower temperatures for longer periods. Grilling is conducted at high levels of heat for short periods of time.”
