total time: 5 mins
Yields: Makes about 1 1/4 cups

Habanero chiles add their signature floral heat to this sweet and tangy mango aioli, which isn’t alarmingly hot thanks to plenty of citrus and and a touch of sugar.


1 cup frozen mango chunks

2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

1 teaspoon granulated sugar

1 teaspoon smoked paprika

1 teaspoon curry powder

1 teaspoon smoked salt (such as hickory)

1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1 small habanero chile, seeded and chopped (about 1/4 teaspoon)

1 cup mayonnaise (such as Duke’s)

How to Make It

Process frozen mango chunks, lime juice, sugar, smoked paprika, curry powder, smoked salt, cayenne pepper, black pepper, and chopped habanero in a food processor until smooth, about 1 minute. Stir together mango mixture and mayonnaise in a medium bowl. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
