Sometimes you need something besides plain mayo on your burger! Why not grab some chopped jalapeno, chili powder, a few dashes of other ingredients and add some bonus flavor? I suggest using chopped jalapeno from the grocery - you can generally find it located near the pickles. We have a jar of this in the fridge almost all of the time.
As for the spices? Well, the sky is the limit - it all depends on what your pantry is loaded with. My go to are basics for some background flavor such as a dash of garlic and onion powder. Then, I start looking for a few other things to add some more "burn" to the mayo.
Jalapeno Chili Mayonnaise
- 1 cup mayo
- 2-3 tablespoons chopped jalapeno (not sweet jalapeno relish)
- Dashes of garlic, minced
- Dashes of chili powder (Cajun or Creole as well)
- Squirt of hot sauce
Combine everything in a bowl, mix well, chill before serving!
Finish off with a couple of extra dashes of seasoning on to, and bonus jalapeno pieces for looks! And, as always, if you plan on working with fresh jalapenos - be sure to wear gloves!
