A staple in Mexican cooking, ancho chili adds smoke and color to this creamy mayo mixed with toasted almonds.


  1. Toast 2 seeded dried ancho chiles in a skillet, 1 minute; soak in 1/2 cup hot water until soft, 20 minutes. Puree the chiles and liquid with 2 tablespoons toasted almonds, the juice of 1 orange, 1 tablespoon honey and 3 tablespoons mayonnaise until smooth.
