In order for this to taste good, you must puree the chipotle in adobo sauce first (don't just chop it up, I made that mistake the first time I made this), and then measure from the puree. And also, we used fresh lime as opposed to the kind that comes in the little lime shaped bottles. This makes a big difference! We also used a clove from garlic that was bought at Aldi. The amount of garlic they called for in this recipe was WAYY too much. You could get away with probably using a quarter of the amount they say to use, or even put garlic powder (not salt!) in TO TASTE. I tried the original sauce alongside this sauce that I made, and noticed that other than the being much less garlicy, the original seems to be a little redder in color, and a little spicier (maybe you could put in just a tad more of your chipotle in adobo puree, but TO TASTE). But once more, I will warn you, the garlic will overpower everything if you aren't careful! But all in all, it's a good recipe, and it might even be the original recipe Subway developed, but just with fresh ingredients as opposed to using powders, preservatives, etc.

Well, Mean Chef, this is definitly a winner. I left out the salt,used light mayo and used bottled lime juice. I had it on some left over pot roast and it was wonderful. If I had any complaint it would be that instead of tablespoons you used ounces. This may be a little confusing for people that don't know that 1 fluid ounce is actually 2 tablespoons. This will be stocked in my fridge at all times, now.
