GARLIC-CHIPOTLE LOVE

Ingredients

  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 12 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 3 tablespoons canned chopped chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • Grated zest of 1 lime
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Steps

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Pour the oil into a heavy ovenproof medium saucepan and add the garlic. Cover the pot with foil, put it in the oven, and cook until the garlic turns a nutty brown and is really soft (like cream cheese), about 45 minutes. Remove the pot from the oven and let the garlic and oil cool to room temperature. Put the garlic and the garlic-infused oil in a food processor or blender. Add the chipotles and sauce, cilantro, lime zest, and salt and puree until smooth. Store in the fridge in a tightly covered container for up to 2 weeks or freeze for up to a month.
