Now This is Some Mayonnaise That I Can Embrace
Macho Mayo got in touch to see if I'd like to test out their zippy mayonnaise. I must confess I've never been a big mayonnaise fan, but that's because it really does taste quite bland. I use mayo in sandwich salads like ham salad, but generally I skip over it. Some mayo with a kick sounded more in line with my palate, so I decided to give it a try.
The two flavors arrived. The medium is Roasted Green Chili. The hot is Roasted Jalapeno (red label). You can see the jars above.
I decided to charcoal grill some hamburgers to try out the mayonnaise.
Grilled Burgers Over Charcoal
Once I finished grilling the hamburgers, I broke out the Macho Mayo Green Chili. Sometimes "hot" is over the top, so I opted for medium to start with.
Normally I dress out my grilled hamburgers, but I decided to go with just the Macho Mayo to get the full effect. This is spread style in a jar. I could have put some in a squirt bottle to make a prettier photo, but I think readers should see what things actually do look like (so I don't photoshop my photos either - other than cropping). I also put the mayo on the meat rather than the bun, so you could actually see it.
All I Can Say is "WOW"
Macho Mayo was so yummy that I added more mayo after I took the photo and started eating my burger. I also warmed up a leftover burger for lunch the next day and had another Macho Mayo burger.
I come across lots of really yummy products, but this is one of my favorite new flavors. It's great on sandwiches. It is wonderful as a dip like Ranch for chips or veggies. And, I'm planning to try this out on White Barbecue Chicken (Alabama style).
This is a total thumbs up. Medium has a mild kick and should work for everyone. Hot Macho Mayo is still good for a lot of people. Just use less if you don't want a whole lot of heat. I say: "Try out Macho Mayo. It really is THAT good" (even for someone who was not big on mayonnaise before).
I hope Food Lion adds this product. Crossing my fingers.
