Lime-Chipotle Olive Oil Aioli

Posted on June 03, 2012 by Tommye Solem


This smokey, spicy, garlicky aioli made from chipotle infused extra virgin olive oil is a fabulous condiment! Use this aioli in coleslaw, in egg salad, on sandwiches or burgers...basically anything.

1 cup Chipotle Olive Oil
2 large egg yolks at room temperature**
2 garlic cloves, smashed
2 teaspoons sea salt
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

In the bowl of a food processor or blender jar, add the egg yolks, salt, garlic and lime juice. Process until well combined. Very slowly, drop by drop, begin to drizzle in the Chipotle Olive Oil while the machine is running. Extreme patience must be taken with this slow process, as too much olive oil poured in at once will cause the sauce to break. Once the olive oil is completely poured in and emulsified, remove the aioli to a sealed container and refrigerate. **This recipe contains raw egg yolks. If you have a compromised immune system, you can use pasteurized eggs for this recipe.** (recipe from Rachel Bradley-Gomez, Veronica Foods Company)
