Chipotle Cherry BBQ Sauce is smoky and sweet and is going to become your new go to BBQ sauce. Ready in just 2 minutes, with no cooking required, this sauce is naturally sweetened and is Whole30, paleo, vegan and gluten free.
Defrost the cherries in the microwave or on the counter until no longer frozen.
Add all the ingredients (except the water) to the blender and blend on high until everything is well combined and smooth.
Store in mason jar with tight fitting lid for up to a week.
Note: If you will be storing in the fridge, you
StorageFridge: Store leftover sauce in the fridge in an airtight container for up to a week.Freezer: This sauce freezes beautifully. I would store this in ½ cup portions (I love souper cubes for this). Once frozen solid, move to a freezer safe bag or container for up to 2 months.Note: This sauce is slightly spicy, so if you are not a huge fan of spice, I would recommend starting with 1 chipotle pepper (you may even want to remove the seeds from the pepper before adding it). If you love spicy foodsI like a little heat, so I would advise you make the recipe as written first, then add 1-2 peppers at a time to the blender. This way you can control the heat without overpowering the rest of the flavors.If you find that you add too many peppers for your liking, add more dark sweet cherries to help balance out the heat. You could also add some honey or maple syrup as well.If you really love a sweet bbq sauceI love how the cherries sweeten the sauce and don’t have the need for any additional sweeteners. You could easily add more dark sweet cherries, maple syrup or honey (1-2 tbsp to start with) or a few pitted medjool dates (Whole30). The same as the peppers, add a tablespoon or so at a time so you can control how sweet it gets.
