Homemade Chipotle Barbecue Sauce

So I realize I just published the recipe for tacos using this sauce. It deserves it’s own post. In fact, we are grilling bbq chicken tonight JUST to have it again!

Begin by warming 2tbl EVOO over medium heat. Add 1 large, finely diced onion and cook until it becomes soft and translucent. Then add 3tsp minced garlic and continue cooking for about 30 seconds until fragrant. Add 3/4tsp salt and 1/4tsp pepper. Pour in 1/2 cup white wine. Whisk to combine. Now add the following: 1/4 cup tomato paste, 1/4 cup honey, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 2tbl Dijon, 1 chopped chipotle pepper and a tablespoon of the adobo sauce that it comes in. Reduce your heat and let that simmer for 25-30 minutes. Now add 2tbl white wine vinegar and 1tbl Worcestershire.

Once it has cooled, pour sauce into a food processor or blender and purée.

We marinated our chicken for 3 hours (but it would’ve kept getting better over time, we’re just impatient) and wow, just wow. You will never buy a jarred variety again.😋
