Chipotle Barbecue Sauce

READY IN: 17mins
Recipe by Hey Jude

This is a nice, simple chipotle sauce...this amount is enough for a slab of ribs or one whole cut-up chicken. Slap it on during the last few minutes of grilling, if done sooner, it may blacken and burn quickly.

I used minced garlic and chipotles flakes for powder. The red wine I used was Madeira. I would have liked a little more sweetness to counteract the wine and vinegar for it was tangy but good! Thanks!
