Best Ever Chipotle Sauce
Best Ever Chipotle Sauce

Ingredients

Method

  • 50g dried chipotle, halved
  • 1 onion, quartered
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 2 tbsp fresh oregano
  • 2 tbsp fresh thyme
  • 1⁄2 tsp cumin seeds
  • Dash of chilli sauce
  • 2 green chillies
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 25ml white wine vinegar
  • 25ml balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp tomato puree
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 90g brown sugar
  • 1⁄2 lime, juice only
  • Salt and pepper
  • Kick things off by boiling a small saucepan of water, and simmering the dried chipotle chillies for 15 minutes. Put the garlic, onion, oregano, thyme, cumin seeds, chilli sauce, green chillies, 1 tbsp of oil, salt and pepper and 200ml of boiling water into a food processor. Blend until smooth.
  • Drain your chipotle chillies, and chuck them into the food processor along with the paste. Blitz until well combined, then spoon the whole lot back into the saucepan with 1 tbsp of oil. Cook for 2 minutes, then add the tomato puree, the vinegars, the soy sauce, sugar, and lime. Boil, then simmer for about 15 minutes until you get a thick, glossy paste. Serve with barbecued meats for a spicy taste sensation!
