It's been too hot to do anything more demanding than picking up a phone to order pizza. Really, who wants to grill when the temperature's over 100? But last night I had a can of crab in the fridge, made a quick batch of crab cakes, with a little chipotle mayonnaise. Chipotles are those dark smoky chiles; in adobe they acquire a tangy zing of vinegar, which makes their salsas even more memorable.
In your blender for every half cup of mayonnaise add two chiles en adobo, with a teaspoon or so of their juice. For an added thrill toss in a teaspoon or so of capers. Puree.I guarantee it will knock your socks off.
