Aioli is a strongly-flavored garlic mayonnaise from the Provence region of southern France. By adding chipotle, a distinctly Mexican flavor, this traditional French garnish turns Latin! Aioli is a popular accompaniment for fish, meats and vegetables.
2 egg yolks
2 crushed garlic cloves
1 tablespoon mustard
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 bunch cilantro, finely chopped
1 small can of chipotle chilies
1 red onion, finely chopped
- In a food processor or blender, combine the egg, egg yolks, garlic, mustard, and lemon juice. Process until smooth.
- With the machine still running, add the olive oil and canola oil in a slow stream and blend until the mixture emulsifies to the consistency of mayonnaise.
- Add the cilantro and chiles and blend until smooth. For a chunky version, stir in the chopped onion. Makes about 2 cups.
