Cherry Chipotle Barbecue Sauce

04ameatballsricebzloI came across a recipe for ground pork and beef meatballs that looked interesting, and it called for A.1. Spicy Chipotle Sauce and a bit of brown sugar.

Well… I already had an open jar of chipotles in adobo in the fridge, and wasn’t about to make a special trip for one condiment when I was pretty certain I could come up with a little sumpin sumpin on my own.

Starting with those chipotles and a small jar of cherry jam and my own barbecue sauce.


I could see it.

A plan formed…

•2 cups barbecue sauce
•5 oz cherry jam
•2 tbsp Sherry Peppers Sauce
•1 tbsp lower sodium tamari
•2 canned chipotles, chooped
•1 tsp adobo sauce from the chipotles
•1 tsp garlic powder

Note: I used MY barbecue sauce, which is already a bit spicy, use your own preferred and adjust the amount of chipotles and adobo sauce to suit your tastes.

Combine the sauce ingredients together in a small slow cooker, cover, and cook on high for a couple of hours, until thickened.

No Sherry Peppers Sauce? No problem! Try adding a couple of tablespoons of beer in stead.
