Dried Apricot Chipotle Sandwich Spread

Total Time

This is like spicy sunshine when used as a spread on a hamburger or in a wrap. The tartness from the lime is a contrast with the sweetness of the dried fruit. It is important to allow the full soaking time for the apricots. From Southern Living magazine.

  1. Stir together the dried apricots, hot water, & lime juice. Let soak a full 15 minutes. Drain. Pat the apricots dry & chop finely.
  2. Stir in mayo, chipotle pepper, adobo sauce, & green onion.
  3. Cover & chill until time to serve.
  4. Note The original recipe had this fairly chunky in texture. The next day I ended up whizzing everything in a mini chopper to make a fairly smooth spread to use on a turkey, swiss, & bacon wrap.
