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.

But, in order for those burgers, chicken and chops to be great, they’ve gotta have a fantastic barbecue sauce!  My Smoky Chipotle BBQ Sauce is the perfect go-to sauce recipe that I use all spring, summer and into the fall for tailgating season!

Here’s how this simple, delicious smoky barbecue sauce comes together

What is chipotle sauce made of?

A can of tomato sauce, molasses, vinegar, minced onion, a few spices and chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. 

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.

What does chipotle BBQ sauce taste like?

It is slightly sweet, tangy and takes on the smoky flavor from the chipotle peppers. It’s the perfect flavor balance for chicken, ribs, chops and even burgers!

Is chipotle sauce spicy?

It can be if you add several chipotle peppers to the sauce. The other ingredients will balance out the spice of the peppers, but don’t go overboard with the peppers – no more than three.

How do you make a spicy bbq sauce from scratch?

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!
