Aioli and Sauce Roundup

It was suggested that I put together a roundup of all my recipes that had an aioli or some other kind of sauce in it, so I thought, why not?  Click on the picture to link to the recipe.

This is a great sauce because it uses a sour cream base instead of mayo.

Awesome with poached or pan-seared Salmon, on top of a baked potato, or just as a dip.

Chipotle Chicken and Corn Chowder

1 can chipotle chiles in adobo sauce, divided

2 T unsalted butter

1 poblano pepper, seeded and finely chopped

1 red bell pepper, seeded and finely chopped

1 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp oregano

1/2 tsp thyme

6 cloves garlic, minced

2 T flour

3 cups whole milk

2 cups chicken broth

6 small red potatoes, peeled and diced

4 oz. Monterrey Jack cheese, shredded

4 oz. cheddar cheese, shredded

2 cups cooked chicken, diced

2 cups frozen corn (or fresh)

1 cup crushed tortilla chips

2 T lime juice

fresh cilantro, chopped, for garnish

1. Remove one chile from the can and mince it. Remove 1 tsp adobo sauce and set aside. Save and freeze remainder of chiles and sauce in can for another use.

2. Melt the butter in a large soup pot and add poblano, red bell, and chile pepper, along with the thyme, oregano, and cumin. Sauté for 5 minutes, or until peppers are softened. Add the garlic and cook an additional minute or until it becomes fragrant.

3. Stir in flour and cook 1 more minute. Slowly stir in the milk and the broth, scraping up any bits from the bottom of the pan.

4. Add the potatoes, and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce to low and simmer for 15 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender.

5. Add the cheeses slowly, stirring to combine well, until melted.

6. Stir in chicken, corn, tortilla chips, adobo sauce, and lime juice. Cover and cook another 10 minutes on low.

7. Serve immediately. If you refrigerate leftovers the chowder may need to be thinned out with a bit of milk.

Bacon & Gorgonzola Cornbread Sliders with Chipotle-Adobo Mayo

I have this thing for sliders.  I don’t really know why a mini-burger is so much tastier than a regular-sized one, but they are definitely more fun. I’ve done a few other sliders (check out my Bourbon BBQ Sliders with Garlic Aioli and these great little General Tso’s Chicken Sliders with Cole Slaw), and these are definitely joining the other recipes on my remake list.

The corn muffins are great on their own, which is what the original recipe is for, but then I thought making it into a slider would be cool.  And it was 🙂  Just mix together a little mayo and seasonings for a yummy aioli and you’ve got yourself something pretty awesome.

gorgonzola slider

Bacon & Gorgonzola Cornbread Sliders

11 oz. cornmeal

1/4 cup sugar

1/2 cup pastry flour*

1 1/2 cup milk

1/4 cup mayo

1 large egg

3 T chopped chives

8 turkey bacon slices, cooked crisp and crumbled

1/2 cup gorgonzola cheese crumbles

1 lb. ground meat (I used turkey)

1 pkg. onion soup mix

sliced cheddar cheese

1. Preheat oven to 400*.  Grease muffin tins or line with foil cupcake liners.

2. Make the muffins, or “buns”, by combining the cornmeal, sugar, flour (*if you don’t have pastry flour you can remove 1/2 tsp from the regular flour and replace it with 1/2 tsp cornstarch- sift well), milk, mayo (sour cream works, too), and egg in a large bowl until well blended. Stir in the chives, bacon, and cheese.

3. Fill muffin cups 2/3 full and bake until golden brown, about 10 to 12 minutes.

4. Make the sliders by combining the meat with the onion soup  mix. Form into patties, about 2 oz. each, and grill or cook in pan (I use my counter-top Foreman grill).

5. When muffins are done and slightly cooled, cut lengthwise through the middle to create a bun with a top and a bottom half.

Chipotle-Adobo Mayo

1/2 cup mayo

1/2 tsp chipotle seasoning

1/2 tsp Adobo seasoning

6. Combine these ingredients well and refrigerate until ready to use.

7. When assembling the sliders place a small square of cheddar cheese on  the bottom portion of the muffin or on the meat patty, add a dollop of the aioli, place over it all the top portion of the muffin, and enjoy!
