Chipotle Vinaigrette

ATTNTurn on the vent over your range or your house will smell from vinegar!

In a very small saucepan, boil

  • 1/2 cup wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup orange juice

on a high heat until the volume is reduced by half. Cool to room temperature and mix in

  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise

until thoroughly blended. Add

  • 1 TBL pureed chipotle in adobo
  • 11/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 11/2 TBL lime juice

Use to make Tuna-Tomato Napoleons.

NOTE: You can buy a can of chipotle chiles in adobo. I put the entire contents of the can into the food processor and use the resulting puree any time I want a spicy and smokey flavor. Just freeze the extra and use it as needed, straight from the freezer.
