    You Must try making this BBQ Sauce.

    Ancho BBQ Sauce – This stuff is sublime!


    Ancho peppers are very mild and rich, tasting like a spicy raisin. I'm never buying pre made sauce again.


    MAKES ABOUT 4 CUPS


    3 dried ancho chiles, stemmed and seeded (easier said, than done) Our Walmart has them @ $6/lb.
    1 tbsp. olive oil
    2 cups diced onion
    7 cloves garlic, minced
    1 cup ketchup
    1/2 cup worcestershire sauce
    1/3 cup packed brown sugar
    1/4 cup cider venegar
    1/4 cup lemon juice
    1 1/2 tbsp. mustard
    2 tsp. salt, or to taste


    1. Soak the anchos in hot water for 30 minutes or until soft. In a large, heavy saucepan, heat the oil over medium heat and add the onion and garlic. Sauté for 3 minutes, or until they begin to wilt. Add the ketchup and anchos and sauté for 4 minutes. Add all of the remaining ingredients and simmer gently for 30–40 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove the mixture from the heat and allow to cool. Place in a blender or food processor and purée. (I use a stick blender). Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator in a sealed container for up to 3 weeks. Reheat before serving.

    My changes:
    Added Pickapeppa paste - this takes a lot of sweet from the catsup & makes it more "earthy."
    Added Black pepper

    If anyone has a source for the Pickapeppa paste, please let me know. The sauce works well, but doesn't go as far. A jar of paste lasts longer than 3 bottles of sauce.

    Sounds good, thanks for sharing. I have a whole bag of ancho chiles in the closet and have been wondering what the heck to do with them.

    My wife had some relatives from South Dakota come visiting today. I grilled using this sauce. Many compliments. I'm passing the recipe along to anyone. Even carry a few printed copies when I'm out and about. The aroma when you're making the sauce is wonderful. Eating it is even better.

    I'm never buying BBQ sauce ever again.

    Thanks for sharing. I haven't made BBQ sauce in a very long time. Luckily I have easy access to all the ingredients. I'll give it a try and report back.
