Low Carb Chipotle Barbecue Sauce

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Sudie

Whew! I thought I lost this recipe, I've been meaning to post it for ages! Anything that makes me feel like I'm eating like a "civilian", despite the diabetes, is a plus in my book. The original recipe, which was from the Santa Fe New Mexican, had 1 tbs. of molasses in it - I leave it out, but you could use it if you wish. Hope you enjoy this!

I have to say, this is pretty good. I didn't have the Splenda or Chipolte, so I substituted Truvia and 1 Jalapeno. I also mixed in corn starch to thicken it up. Not too bad.
