My DH and I really enjoyed this recipe with shredded chicken, I tasted it about 10 minutes into cooking and wasn't sure how it would turn out... but I let it simmer about 45 min to thicken and it was great! It didn't have as much bite as another reviewer mentioned but I did cut down 1/4 tsp on the chili powder and a little on the liquid smoke. I also didn't puree the celery and onions, just finely diced!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Puree onions and celery.
  2. In a large sauce pot combine the puree and the remaining ingredients and simmer for 25 minutes. Remove and use as desired. Great on meats, tofu, even vegetables!
