  • 2 large Egg yolks
  • 1 tablespoon Lemon juice (about a half a lemon)
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic (finely minced (about 2-3 cloves))
  • ¼ teaspoon sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tbs Chipotle in adobo
  • ¾ cup Vegetable oil (extra lite 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, scrap sides, process again until combined.
  • Serve immediately or store in air tight container in refrigerator until ready to use. Makes approximately one cup.


  • Be sure to blend all of the ingredients really well before adding the oil so that the eggs can emulsify.
  • When adding the oil, this recipe works best when it's added in a continuous slow steady stream while the blender or processor is running.
  • Once it's done, give it a taste and adjust any ingredients (i.e. add more salt), if needed.
  • This chipotle aioli sauce can be used for a variety of things. Like I said before, you can slather it onto a burger or dip fries in it. It also goes well with sandwiches, chicken tenders, and fish sticks if you’re looking for even more ways to enjoy it!
