The other day I had a chance to taste a special chili called Chipotle from Mexico and it was so tasty. I am not such a big fan of Tex-Mex food but this chili had a very complex flavor and I wondered why. Chipotle is rather a new and unknown product here in Norway where spicy hot spices have not been in their food culture so long. Later after I came home I googled and found out Chipotle is a kind of processed chili, it is smoked and dried, then I understood more the complexity and the intensity of the flavor.
Do you know Chipotle?
Recently I begin to see Chipotle here and there in grocery shops and supermarket stores. I found this Chipotle Majonnaise and did not hesitate to buy it. Generally I only use Japanese QP mayonnaise as I think Norwegian mayonnaise does not have any flavor. But this Chipotle mayonnaise has a kick of spicy chili and I like it.
Not only you can use it as dressing, you can mix with meat or fish and make burgers.
I made a beef hamburger with 100% lean beef ground meat and mixed in a little ketchup and chipotle mayonnaise. Salt, pepper, bread crumb, egg and milk was also added. The meat was lean but it came altogether very nice.
Very fresh lettuce! (^o^)
Tomato, onion and a fried egg on top!
