    SkinnyMinnie's Note:

    I was responsible for this recipe in class. It is not the typical BBQ sauce, but is out of this world. The list of ingredients may be long, but it is well worth it!! The will yield 1 qt of sauce, enough for 3-4 slabs of ribs or 4-6 chickens. It can also be canned. Just follow the instructions for canning high acid foods. This is also a mild sauce, but you may add 1/4 tsp. of cayenne pepper (or to taste) for a hotter sauce. The chiles used in this recipe are the large dried MILD red chiles called California or New Mexico chiles.
