Green Chili Aioli takes only minutes to blend & quickly becomes a spicy, creamy, flavorful spread or dip you can enjoy with fries, rings, or on a sandwich.
I’ve done it. I’ve made something that will make your mouths water and your friends beg for the recipe. Wanna know the best part? It literally took minutes to create, but it tasted oh so good. Having a wonderful dip or a spread makes for the perfect game time grub, so why not make your game viewing experience even better by creating the perfect homegating experience from the comfort of your living room with friends instead of heading out in the weather for the typical tailgating party!
Remember the 25 pounds of roasted green chili I bought late last summer, then formed into these little mounds to freeze for future use? Well, they come in handy when you want to make things like green chili aioli, eh? Not to worry, my friends. If you aren’t a summer food saver like I am, you can find canned green chiles at just about any grocery store. Just drain ’em and mince ’em on up.
To make this recipe, I just took my chipotle aioli (which, by the way, would have also been outstanding paired with these fries and rings) and substituted the chipotle and lemon juice for green chili and lime juice. All you have to do is throw everything but the oil into the food processor, blend, and then slowly pour the oil into the processor while its running.
BAM! Homemade aioli with flavor that can’t be beat.
As soon as I started taking my photos, I started dipping.
I was going to take a photo of me dipping one fry at a time, but I wanted this post to be as close to reality as possible. Not shown: photo of me stuffing multiple fries smothered in green chile aioli into my mouth at once. I wasn’t sure if the spice from the chipotle sweet potato fries would conflict with the spice of the green chili aioli, but let me tell you, the two flavors complimented each other so well that there were hardly any fries left after I was done with them! I also used this aioli to smother on top of a bacon green chili burger (post yet to come) stacked high with these onion rings and fresh arugula in between the buns. Now we’re talking foodie heaven, folks.
