After I made this Paleo Chipotle Lime Mayo I freaking sprinted over to my computer to write this post. SPRINTED. And to be quite honest I'm not much of the athlete, so this is important people!! I'm gonna vouch for myself real quick though; I just joined Orange Theory Fitness. So hey, maybe my sprints will improve. Anyways, you don't care about my attempts to be fit (do you?). You care about MAYO. And I care about it too, hence my blog name coming in clutch.
The reason I sprinted to my computer was because this is the BOMB. I also can't stop typing words in all caps because I'm damn excited about it. Why?? Cause I used to buy a jar of $10 chipotle lime mayo (that is really really good and you should buy it anyways) when I could make my own at home with fewer ingredients and more money in my pocket. This batch cost about $6. Heck, maybe even less. Idk, math is escaping me.
This recipe calls for 5 ingredients. Okay maybe 6 or 7....but you probably have almost all of them! Heads up: you will be making your own mayo. No, you will not be unscrewing a jar and adding the flavors. You'll be making real, live, in the flesh mayo. And ya know what, once you go fat you'll never go back (cuz mayo is just a bunch of fat). *sigh* poor humor.
So get out that immersion blender baby! Lets get goin'.
- Find a cup with a circumference JUST larger than your immersion blender. You want room to tilt the blender. I used a 2 cup glass measuring cup. You could easily use a mason jar too. If the cup is too wide IT WILL NOT WORK. I repeat. WILL NOT WORK.
- Place 1 whole egg, 1 egg yolk, lime juice, dijon, salt & spices in the cup. Then cover with 1 cup of avocado oil. Just use avocado oil. Don't try to switch up the recipe. For your money's sake just do it.
- Place the immersion blender in the bottom of the cup to cover the eggs and power on!! Don't pulse or stop, keep blending. You'll see the white mayo start to creep up the sides. Once it stops moving upwards thats when you tilt and move the blender to work in the rest of the oil.
- Once smooth, add remaining lime and chipotle pepper. Blend again. Boom. Done. You're now a certified mayo gangster. I would gift you a certificate but my printer is out of ink. Seriously though, cartridges are expensive.
Go ahead and put it on everything: bun-less burgers, chicken, steak, eggs, salad, salmon, broccoli, I don't judge! My favorite way to eat mayo is mixing it with chilled ground beef and wrapping it in a collard green. Don't knock it till ya try it. ENJOY.
