Kyle's Fire and Ice Dip Duo

This recipe calls for chipotle chiles, which are actually dried, smoked jalapeños. They can be bought packed in adobo, a sauce made from ground chiles, herbs, tomatoes, and vinegar. Serve the dip with bell pepper strips, chips, or crackers.


  • 2 scallions
  • 2 to 3 small canned chipotle chiles in adobo plus 1/4 teaspoon adobo sauce
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice


Finely chop scallions. Wearing protective gloves, mince enough chipotles to a paste to measure 1 1/2 tablespoons. In a bowl whisk together all ingredients with salt to taste. Dip may be kept, covered and chilled, 3 days.


Makes about 1 cup
