This is basically a chipotle mayonnaise. It is a copycat version of Subway's Southwest Sauce. It's not exactly the same, but pretty tasty regardless.

Southwest Sauce

1 cup mayo
½ tsp dijon mustard
1 squeeze lime juice
2 chipotles in adobo, chopped
1 small clove garlic, minced
¼ tsp salt
½ tsp sugar

Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend well.

Makes about 1 cup.

This is a really yummy sauce. It is really good on turkey sandwiches. I recently made it to dip Oven-Fried Sweet Potatoes in. Mmm! It's also good on chicken fingers.

Two chipotles make it pretty hot, in my opinion. I'm kind of a wuss when it comes to hot, so if you like things really spicy, you can try doing three chipotles instead of two. But you might want to do two first, taste it, then add more if you would like.

Despite the fact that I strongly dislike jalepenos, I absolutely love chipotles. Chipotles are smoked jalepenos, but I don't think they taste anything like jalepenos. You buy them in the Mexican section of the grocery store. They come in little cans that say "Chipotles in Adobo." Adobo is the super-flavorful sauce they come packed in.
