I have a great new recipe! Smokey Raspberry BBQ Sauce is great to use on the grill. (or my air fryer!!) We grill year around here in the South. If we get a sunny 60-degree day in January we are lighting that grill! I have a great Roasted Garlic Marinade I created on a cold day too!
I buy a great BBQ sauce with raspberries and chipotle peppers at a specialty sauce store in Eureka Springs, AR. So when I found raspberries on sale for .50 a package, I decided I needed to make a BBQ sauce. I thought that sounded like a great place to start.
Why “Smokey” Raspberry BBQ Sauce?
Chipotle chiles are smoked jalapeños that have been dried. They come dry, which can be made into a number of sauces or dishes. Chipotles also come canned in adobo sauce. Adobo sauce is a tangy red sauce. They are spicy, but not HOT. And the smokiness of the peppers really comes thru. Putting them with the honey, vinegar, tomato sauce, and raspberries makes a really sweet-hot combination that I really love!!
A salmon fillet was the first thing I slathered it on and it was PERFECT! I cooked it in my NuWave Oven/air fryer for about 10 minutes.
Ultimate Portion Fix/21 Day Fix: Raspberry Chipotle BBQ sauce
- 1 small can tomato sauce, low sodium
- 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
- 1 teaspoon adobo sauce from the can of chipotles, or to taste
- 1 tablespoon chopped chipotle peppers, or to taste
- ¼ cup honey
- 2 tablespoons water, if needed
- 1 cup raspberries
- Whisk the 1st ingredients in a small saucepan. Mix in the berries.
- Cook the sauce over a low simmer for about 20 minutes or the berries have broken down, stirring often to keep from sticking.
- If the sauce gets too thick you can thin it down with a little of the water. When you take it off the heat it will thicken a little.
