  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Combine brown sugar, chile sauce, grape jelly, mustard, vinegar, soy sauce, honey, salt, and chipotle powder in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook, whisking well until brown sugar and jelly are dissolved, about 5 minutes. Bring just to a boil; remove from heat. Add cornstarch; whisk sauce until smooth and thickened.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • For a spicier sauce, use a little more chipotle powder, but note it gets hotter the longer it sits.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

This was FANTASTIC to dip meatballs in. Its wonderful how its so sweet and gooey then BOOM! theres the heat! thank u!

Perfect with pork chops and white rice . Definitely recommend tasting for heat level and adjust Chili sauce and chipolte accordingly as you cook. Really good sauce!

This was good. I thought it was a little too sweet; next time I would leave out the honey. Otherwise, I liked all the flavors and the chipotle spice. Oh WOW, I just realized that I used 6 times ...
