Ingredient NotesMayonnaise: Lite or regular mayo works just fine here.Chipotle peppers in adobo: This will be found in the "international" aisle of grocery stores. It's packaged in small cans that each contain 4-6 peppers. Only use one pepper here - not the whole can! - as they're pretty spicy.Recipe Tips
Using one pepper and one Tablespoon of the adobo sauce brings a low-moderate level of spice, but one that doesn't rise to higher levels as you keep eating it. If you're not sure how much spice you'd like, start with one or two teaspoons of the adobo sauce, take a taste, then add more if necessary.
Dice the pepper finely so that the spiciness gets dispersed the best it can. And do be careful when dicing as it'll be slippery.
