Share Share     Print Print

Serves 4

f you like to eat your artichokes with a creamy, mayonnaise-based sauce, this one's for you. The chipotle pepper adds spice and some sweetness that balances the flavor of the artichoke. For a milder sauce, use only half of a pepper. You can also microwave your artichokes for 5-8 minutes in a microwave-safe dish with a small amount of water in the bottom. Cover loosely with plastic wrap or a lid before cooking, and let stand 5 minutes before serving.

  • 4 artichokes, carefully washed, thorny tips and stems trimmed
  • 2 lemons, halved
  • 5 garlic cloves, quartered
  • 1/2 cup Best Foods Just 2 Good! mayonnaise
  • 1 Embasa chipotle chili pepper in adobo sauce
  1. Bring about 1-inch of water to a boil in an extra-large pot with a lid and a steamer basket inside. When water is boiling, carefully arrange artichokes, stem end up, in the steamer. Squeeze the juice of one lemon over the artichokes. Quarter the juiced lemon rind and place the sections in any spaces between the artichokes. Cover and cook for 30 minutes for medium artichokes, and 45 minutes for large artichokes. They should test tender when pierced in the stem end with a fork. Remove artichokes to large plates and spread open the leaves. Serve hot or cold.

  2. In the work bowl of a food processor, combine the garlic cloves, 1/4-cup fresh lemon juice (remove any seeds), mayonnaise, and 1 chili pepper with whatever sauce is on it when you remove it from the can. Process until smooth. Serve immediately or chilled.
