Ancho Chile and Bourbon Sauce

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 40 mins

A wonderful sauce that goes well with everything. I like to add it to rice when cooking. Goes great with pork, chicken and beef.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat.
  2. Add the onions and cook until soft.
  3. Add the bourbon and cook until completely reduced.
  4. Add the remaining ingredients and cook until reduced by half.
  5. Strain through a fine mesh strainer, return mixture to the pan, and cook to sauce consistency, if you want to thicken, add some flour.
  6. Season with salt.

If you let this sauce get thick enough then use it on quail and grill them, it is to die for. MMMM mmm good. L.R. Beckwith
