This Chipotle Mayo is prettttttty much my dip dream come true. I love spicy food, I love creamy food, and I loooove Tex-Mex flavors! And this dip is great with Potatoes. So, I think my feelings are justified — yeah?

I originally created this recipe to go along with my Crispy Baked Avocado Fries, but let’s not stop there. It’d be great in sandwiches, in burritos, with tacos….heck, I even massaged it into my Kale Salad one day. PSA: it was very tasty. Would totally recommend.

The recipe + steps are so dang easy too. Simply add everything to a blender, and you’re good to go! The hardest part is remembering to soak your Cashews, but I have a few hacks for that listed in the recipe notes, in case you forget.

  • Author: Caitlin Shoemaker
  • Prep Time: 10 Minutes
  • Cook Time: 0 Minutes
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 1 1/2 cup 1x
  • Category: Sauce
  • Method: Blender
  • Cuisine: American


  • 1 cup Raw Cashews, Soaked*
  • 1 Chipotle Pepper in Adobo* (from a can)
  • 1 clove of Fresh Garlic
  • Juice of 1 Lime
  • ¼ cup + 3 tbsp Filtered Water, plus more if necessary
  • ¼ tsp Cumin
  • ½ tsp Salt


  1. Add the soaked Cashews and all of the remaining ingredients to a high-speed blender with a narrow base.
  2. Blend for 45-60 seconds, until smooth and creamy. Add more water (if necessary) in 1 tbsp increments.
  3. Serve as desired. Refridgerate in an air-tight container for up to 7 days.


  • This recipe will work the best in a high-speed blender with a narrow base, or in a single serving bullet-style blender. If you do not have either of those, I would suggest doubling the recipe so the blades don’t get stuck!
  • If you forget to soak your Cashews ahead of time, you can either (1) carefully pour hot water over them and let sit for 30 minutes, or (2) microwave them in water for 3 minutes and let sit until soft.
  • This recipe is pretty spicy; if you’d like it to be a medium heat level, I would only use 1/2 of a Chipotle Pepper.

  1. I used a whole chipotle pepper in adobo but we did not find it too spicy. It was a perfect spice level for us. I ended up adding 3 additional tablespoons of water, but next time I will add more to make it drizzle-able. I used a regular blender on the highest setting and just had to stop and scrape it down a couple of times. I served it with the Southwestern Black Bean Casserole (Dump and Bake), but it would be great on a veggie, black bean, or Beyond Beef burger, as well!

  2. How long do the cashews need to be soaked? The instructions only say what to do if you forget to soak them.

    1. For the best results, raw cashews should be soaked for at least 4 hours. This time allows the cashews to soften, making them easier to blend into a smooth and creamy consistency for the Vegan Chipotle Mayo. If you can, it’s ideal to soak them overnight for about 8 hours.

      If you forget to soak the cashews ahead of time, you have two quicker alternatives mentioned in the recipe:

      Hot Water Soak: Pour hot water over the cashews and let them sit for 30 minutes.
      Microwave Method: Microwave the cashews in water for 3 minutes and then let them sit until soft.

  3. I was a real mayo lover before I went WFPB. I tried multiple no oil mayo recipes but none satisfied… until I tried this one! This is my go to mayo. I use it in soy curl chicken salad and on burritos. I use it as a mayo but I also like it as a sour cream sub. I’m not really a chipotle fan but I love this recipe. I freeze the leftover chipotle to use in future batches. I also freeze any leftover mayo for future use.
