Ericka Sanchez One thing I miss dearly from Texas is barbecue sauce. My favorite barbecue sauces are tangy and sweet with a hint of spice. I’ve learned to make my very own, sweetened with cherries and honey. For a full, spicy kick, I season chipotle chilies in adobo to give them that distinct barbecue flavor everyone loves. This sauce is great as a marinade or as a topping on your brisket or grilled chicken.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 cans (8-oz) Muir Glen™ Organic tomato sauce
  • 2 cups cherries, pitted
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon chile ancho powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoons cayenne pepper
  • 1 chipotle chili in adobo sauce

Directions

  • 1
    In a medium saucepan melt butter over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and cook for 5 minutes until translucent.
  • 2
    Add remaining ingredients to the saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and let simmer for 25-30 minutes. Stir occasionally.
  • 3
    Pour the sauce into a blender and puree. Let cool to room temperature. Serve and enjoy!

Expert Tips

  • For more heat, add 2 to 3 additional chipotle chiles. This is great as a dip or perfect as a pulled pork sauce.
