Chipotle-Chili Tartar Sauce

This is an excellent all purpose sauce for adding a little smokiness/spiciness to burgers or whatever else you choose. Sometimes when I have people over to eat, but I want to keep things simple, I make something plain and then have a few sauces/spreads available so everyone can choose whichever one they like. It's nice because you can whip them up quickly the day before and they're ready to go.

Yield: approx. 1 ¼ cups

3/4 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons minced red onion
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro or dill
1 tablespoon minced canned chipotle chilies in adobo (or more to taste)
1 tablespoon drained capers
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Whisk everything together in small bowl. Can be made 2 days ahead; Cover and chill.

barely tweaked from Bon Appétit (originally from Hal’s Bar & Grill, Venice, CA)

The original recipe called for dill, but based on
the reviews, I used cilantro (and did not regret it).
