Chipotle Mayonnaise

Homemade mayo can be a bit tricky to make, but once you get it-- it seems super easy and you'll wonder why you ever bought it? This is a great twist on mayonnaise adding chipotle, which is sure to spice up your every day sandwich, or a delicious dip...really you can put it on anything-- I do.

2 Egg yolks
1 cup of olive oil
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1/2 tablespoon minced garlic
2 teaspoons chipotle powder

In a medium bowl, beat egg yolks well with an electric mixer. Very slowly add oil, one tablespoon at a time in, beating constantly until light and creamy. Once all oil is added stir in lemon juice, garlic and chipotle and mix well. Viola all done. Make sure to refrigerate immediately as mayo is notoriously known for spoiling.
