onion rings, sweet potato fries, and homemade aioli

Why this recipe works so well:

  • It literally takes just a few minutes to create, but it tasted oh so good.
  • The flavor is wonderfully intense. Green chile, garlic, lime juice, sugar, and salt combine to yield a super creamy sauce that is spicy, sweet, tart, and salty.
  • You can use this recipe as a dip for fries and rings or a as a spread on sandwiches and burgers.

Here’s how to make it:

  • To make this recipe, I started with my chipotle aioli recipe and substituted the chipotle and lemon juice for green chili and lime juice.
  • The first step is to put everything but the oil into the food processor and blend the ingredients to emulsify the yolks. Ingredients in food processor to make aioli with green chile
  • Then slowly pour the oil into the processor using a small, steady stream, while the processor is running. Continue to mix for about a minute until the aioli thickens.blended Green Chile Aioli in food processor

Recipe tips:

  • Instead of a food processor, you can also make this recipe using an immersion blender and a flat bottomed bowl or a wide mouthed mason jar.
  • You can use drained canned green chile or freshly roasted (my preference).
  • Hatch green chile is the absolute best and it is available only once a year towards the end of summer. If your local farmers market or Whole Foods is selling it, stock up and buy it in bulk.
  • To freeze large amounts of green chile, line a large tray with parchment paper. Push green chile into a small bowl or measuring cup, squeeze out any air to compact it, then invert onto lined tray. Set tray in freezer and once mounds have frozen solid, you can transfer them to a resealable plastic storage bag for longer term freezer storage. roasted green chile in piles on tray
