When I made my Steak Ramen Bowls with Chipotle Yum Yum Sauce, you know what I needed? I needed the Yum Yum Sauce.

I’m not exactly sure why I decided to make my Yum Yum Sauce with Chipotle, but man, am I glad I did. It was really just the thing. I guess it’s really like Chipotle Mayo with a bit more sophistication. Oh my gosh is it good!

On the other hand, if Chipotle doesn’t float your boat, and you want to go the traditional route,  just use a tomato paste instead of the Chipotle. Feel free to riff off this as much as you want. Maybe a touch of smoked paprika? Or swing back to the Asian side with a few drops of Sesame oil.

If you’ve never had Yum Yum Sauce, it’s a little tangy with just a hint of spice and it’s pretty amazing stuff. You might have had it at your Japanese Steak House.

Use it as a dip for veggies or tempura, slather it on sandwiches. Put it on your Avocado Toast. You’re getting tired of that already, aren’t you? It would be great on burgers, in a grilled cheese. French Fries? Did I mention French Fries? But most of all use it in my Steak Ramen Bowls with Chipotle Yum Yum Sauce. Enjoy!

  • Servings: 3/4 cup
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

Note: feel free to adjust any and all ingredients to your taste. If you’re not a fan of heat, use tomato paste instead of chipotle for a more traditional sauce.

  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons or so of minced Chipotle Pepper in Adobo Sauce along with any sauce clinging on to the pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  •  a pinch of salt, to taste

Mix all the ingredients together. It will thicken a bit when refrigerated. Make it a little ahead if time allows so the flavors blend.
