Homemade mayo is easy and so much better than store bought. A food processor, blender or immersion blender may be used for making mayo.  I prefer to use an immersion blender.In a bowl, add all ingredients except olive and vegetable oil.

Ingredients

  • 2 egg yolks (room temperature), whisked
  • 1 tbsp. fresh lime juice
  • ½ tsp. Dijon mustard
  • ½ cup fresh cilantro
  • 2 chipotle peppers in adobe sauce
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp. cold water
  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup vegetable oil

Preparation

Step 1

  • In a bowl, add all ingredients except olive and vegetable oil.

Step 2

  • In a measuring cup mix oils together.

Step 3

  • On a low speed, blend ingredients until peppers are pureed.

Step 4

  • With blender still running, slowly drizzle in oils to form an emulsion.
