Chipotle Aioli

Yield: 1 cup Aioli


  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice (about a half a lemon)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic finely minced (about 2 to 3 cloves)
  • ¼ teaspoon sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons chipotle in adobo
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil (extra light olive oil works great too)


  • Place yolks, lemon juice, garlic, sugar, salt, and chipotle in food processor. Pulse to combine. Alternatively, blend with immersion blender.
  • With processor or blender running, slowly pour in oil. Process until aioli forms and thickens, about a minute. Turn processor off, scrape sides, process again until combined.
  • Serve immediately or store in airtight container in refrigerator until ready to use.
