Cherry Chipotle BBQ Sauce is a tangy, sweet, finger-licking jar of awesome. Homemade barbecue sauce is easy to make and so much tastier than store-bought. Showcase your grilled burgers, chicken, and pulled pork with this beautifully balanced barbecue sauce.
Combine all the ingredients in a medium saucepan. Heat on medium-low heat to combine flavors until warmed through.
To blend in the cherries, use an immersion blender right in the sauce pan. This can also be accomplished in a blender or food processor.
If making ahead, store in the fridge. Yields about 2 cups.
As written, this recipe has a kid-friendly level of heat. If you want real spice, add more adobo or some chopped chipotle pepper. I recommend doing this in small increments because a little goes a long way. See writing in the body of this post for more details.Use whatever BBQ seasoning is your preference or you can use my Grilling Rub for Pork. Be sure to add the BBQ seasoning prior to the salt, then add the salt to taste. This is because BBQ seasonings blends vary greatly in the salt they contain.This recipe can be easily doubled.
