This recipe was created as a component of my new brunch dish: low carb ranchero benedict. I was going to include the Hollandaise as part of that recipe, but it was SO good that I thought it could definitely be a recipe on its own. 

Low Carb Ranchero Benedict

I already have a regular low carb Hollandaise sauce on the site, and this version is adapted from that one. And although you might think that Hollandaise is just for Benedict dishes, it can be used for oh so much more!

Uses for Chipotle Hollandaise

How to Make Chipotle Hollandaise

Set up a bain marie or double boiler with the water simmering. In the top bowl, add some egg yolks, white wine vinegar, and water. Whisk until foamy.

Add some softened butter, one chunk at a time. Whisk until each chunk is incorporated before adding the next, whisking constantly (apart from if you have to take photos LOL).

When half the butter has been added, add some chipotle powder. I use a teaspoon of powder which makes the sauce spicy and smoky. But you could always try half a teaspoon and add more later if you aren't sure!

When the sauce is luxuriously thick, taste for seasoning and add salt and pepper as necessary.

If you need to keep the sauce warm, cover the bowl, and keep over a very low heat. If it thickens up too much, splash a little warm water and whisk well.

The sauce can be made a day in advance. To reheat, cook it in the microwave on half power or gently on the stovetop until it is warm. When reheating, cook it slowly and gently, to avoid overcooking the egg or causing the sauce to separate. Whisk well then serve.
