The perfect recipe for smokey, spicy & sweet barbecue sauce! Fantastic for burgers, chicken, pork chops and ribs, this simple BBQ sauce will be your new go-to recipe for grilling season!
Is getting together with neighbors, friends and family for cookouts and get-together’s on your summer to-do list? Every summer we get together with our neighbors for fun cookouts. Great burgers, grilled chicken and pork chops are always on the menu – and in order for those burgers, chicken and chops to be great, they’ve gotta have a fantastic barbecue sauce! My Smokey Chipotle Barbecue Sauce is the perfect go-to sauce recipe that I use all spring, summer and into the fall for tailgating season!
I start my sauce with just a few simple ingredients that you likely already have in your pantry. A can of tomato sauce, molasses, vinegar, minced onion and a few spices. The special ingredient that really gives this sauce its smokey, spicy depth is the chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. These typically come in a 7 oz. can, found in the International foods section of your local grocery store.
Before I simmer the sauce, I puree all of the ingredients in a blender (or food processor). I do this not only to puree the peppers and onions, but to also get all of the flavors to come together as they cook. From the blender, I then immediately poor the sauce into a small saucepan and slowly simmer over low heat for about 25-30 minutes. You’ll have the most amazing barbecue sauce, that’s way better than anything that comes in a bottle!
This Smokey Chipotle Barbecue Sauce is the perfect condiment for my Smokehouse Burgers! Give it a try on a full rack of ribs, barbecued chicken, pork loin or bone-in pork chops.
Here’s the easy recipe:
I hope you’re able to enjoy a great season of grilled burgers, chops, ribs, and chicken with this fantastic go-to barbecue sauce. This sauce will make your burgers the hit of the neighborhood cookout! Enjoy! ~Erin
