- 1 large egg yolk
- 1 Tablespoon red wine vinegar
- dash of lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt or kosher salt
- 3/4 cup avocado oil (see notes for other oils)
- 1+ Tablespoon adobo sauce from a can of chipotle peppers (see note for sub)
- splash of lime juice
- pinch of smoked paprika (optional)
- pinch of onion powder (optional)
- Combine egg yolk, vinegar, lemon juice, mustard, and salt in a medium bowl. Whisk until blended/mixed thoroughly, about 30 seconds.
- Using 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon at a time (and whisking constantly), add the oil a few drops at a time to the yolk mixture until you’ve used 1/4 cup oil. This will take 4 to 5 minutes.
- Next place egg mixture in a small food processor or blender with a feed shoot. You may also continue to whisk by hand.
- Slowly add remaining 1/2 cup oil in a very thin stream, pulsing food processor or whisking constantly, until mayonnaise is thick, about 6 minutes or so by hand. Add in the chipotle sauce and/or paprika or chili powder. Mix in onion powder and splash of lime. Whisk again until combined.
- Taste to see if mayo, adjust with more spices or lime as needed.
- Cover and refrigerate. This mayo can be made up to 2 days ahead. Keep chilled for up to 4 to 6 days. Garnish with herbs and pepper when serving, if desired.
