Is there a Mexican sauce to go with these potatoes?

Yes in fact, there is! Our go-to sauce for just about everything is this Chipotle Aioli.

It’s the perfect creamy, tangy sauce to drizzle over these potatoes. You could easily make it in 5 minutes while the potatoes are cooking. As a bonus, a few of the ingredients overlap so just make everything all at once and you’re all set!
