Smoky meets sweet-and-spicy. Keeps well and has lots of creative uses: use as a dipping sauce, salad dressing, or drizzle on burgers.

Wow! What a great sauce. It was easy to make and was absolutely wonderful. I didn't have any ancho chili powder so I used Chipolte Chili Powder. It carried a pretty big kick. Ancho might not be as spicy so I would probably cut back a little of the chili powder if i were to use chipolte again. I made to use with chicken tenders but decided to make into a spinach salad with tenders on the top and used the sauce as a dressing. Awww...it was so good. Used white corn and black beans as a side.

Great idea but way too much ancho pepper for my taste even for meats. Would use 3/4 as much for ham etc. and perhaps 1/4-1/2 if for use as a salad dressing (which I tried full strength and wow-ee!) Recommended making with less tasting then adjusting for your own preference. Read More

Great taste. Looked everywhere for ground anco and couldn't find it (even in specialty markets) but substituted paprika and it worked. I have some whole dried anchos that I'll grind up for next time when I have more time. Read More

This tasted very sharp to me so I had to thin it out with Ranch dressing and then it was WONDERFUL as a sauce for sweet potato fries! Thanks for the recipe! Read More

This a great sauce versatile as a salad dressing or dipping sauce. I used as dressing for salad and as a dip for mushrooms and bread. Straight up delicious. Truly a sweet-meets-heat item. The chipotle powder gives it a great smokiness and heat balanced by the sweetness of the honey. It took three days to use up the sauce and the heat definitely increased each day--which is great since I enjoy food with a kick. One of the best things about this is you can distinctly tell as a dressing this is fresh--the taste is absent the distinct flavor of preservatives and artificial components of commercially made dressings. Awesome. Super easy to make. 5 minutes tops and you have a natural and low-calorie dressing with great flavor... Read More

I've never been a fan of honey mustard, but adding the chili powder was great. I served this with a baked chicken nugget recipe on this site too. Great match. Read More

I love sauces and dips that are flavorful and versatile! I used this sauce to accompany the Chicken Nut Puffs appetizer and it was delicious! This sauce also freezes well so I just take it down the night before I need it and serve it with our appetizers. Great recipe! Read More

I gave this 4 stars only because I had to alter it. I used only half the amount of chili powder and garlic powder and only had white vinegar. But my husband and I both agree that it is still very very yummy and so easy to make. Two thumbs up! Read More
