A little sweet, a little spicy, and all good. Chipotles (smoked jalapenos) make everything better.
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 small yellow onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 cups ketchup
2 Tablespoons cider vinegar
2 Tablespoons spicy brown mustard
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire
1/4 cup chipotles in adobo sauce, minced
1/2 - 1 cup water
Kosher salt & fresh ground pepper
- Sauté onions in olive oil until softened, then add garlic and cook for 1 minute.
- Add the ketchup, vinegar, mustard, brown sugar, Worcestershire, chipotles and season with salt & pepper. Stir well, thin with water to desired consistency, simmer 10-15 minutes and season with salt and pepper.
