*Full disclosure: I am a proud partner with Unilever's Agents of Change Master Class program. Unilever provided me with coupons to purchase Best Foods®/Hellmann’s® Real Mayonnaise, but the views and opinions expressed in this post are completely my own.
If you want to add flavor and flair to meals, there are shelves full of products to choose from at our local grocery stores. For years, we’ve been dipping, dressing and spreading our vegetables, meats, breads and crackers with all sorts of stuff. Personally, I’ve always loved the creamy, rich texture and flavor that Best Foods®/Hellmann’s® Mayonnaiseadds to my sandwiches, burgers and hot dogs. I recently experimented with this old favorite and added a little tang and spice to it! With just a few added ingredients, I made a tasty sauce that adds a spicy kick to anything I’d typically add plain mayo to--and more! My Chipotle Chili Mayo Sauce is perfect to spread on sandwiches, burgers, drizzled over hot dogs and tacos, as well as rice and grilled vegetables like corn, peppers and zucchini.
Why do I choose Best Foods®/Hellmann’s® Mayonnaise? It’s made with real, simple ingredients that are sourced from trusted American Farms including cage-free eggs and responsibly sourced oils. The plant-based oils in Best Foods®/Hellmann’s® Mayonnaise contain monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids that can part of an overall heart-healthy diet. As a culinary-focused dietitian, I love the versatility of this product! By adding a few ingredients to the mayo, I can change the flavor of my foods to be sweet, savory or spicy, and I know that simple flavor-enhancers like my chipotle chili mayo encourages my kids to eat an even wider variety of vegetables, lean proteins and whole grains.
