Sweet with a Smokey, Spicy Heat, this Homemade Chipotle Brown Sugar Barbecue Sauce is so good, you can use it on virtually anything!
This is a simple, but flavor packed sauce that can be whipped up in minutes.
The sauce features Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce. This can be found in the Mexican section at virtually any grocery store. You can also find it on Amazon . (Note: If you buy here, a fraction goes back towards grocieies for this blog.)
Chipotles in Adobo are smoked and dried jalapeños rehydrated and canned in a sweet and tangy purée of tomato, vinegar, garlic, and some other spices, for a ruddy sauce that packs wicked heat but with plenty of balance and body.
Add the contents into a small mixing bowl with beer (stock can be substituted, but beer is preferable), brown sugar, garlic, olive oil, and salt. Puree using an immersion blender or traditional blender. That’s it. Super simple and so good.
I use this blender.
The first time I made this, I was cooking with my brother Paul. (That was your shout-out Dude.) Everyone on my Dad’s side of the family and now my kids too, love to cook. Family cooking and creating are a common occurrence at our house.
I was originally going to make a brown sugar and chipotle dry rub, but my brother thought a sauce would be even better, and boy was he correct!
Check out the Grilled Sweet Chipotle Pork Tenderloin with Cilantro Lime Chimichurri made with this Homemade Chipotle Brown Sugar Barbecue Sauce that we had that night. Enjoy!
