This is a super sweet and spicy BBQ sauce with fruit that my family and I found in Mexico last Christmas. Try it over grilled tuna like we did, or experiment with chicken or ribs. I have also served this poured over a block of cream cheese to smear over crackers. Nice!

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oil over in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook and stir onion in the hot oil until soft and slightly browned, about 4 minutes. Add garlic to the pan and saute for 1 minute. Stir in chipotle peppers and cook, stirring continuously, for 1 minute. Add raspberries and cook until soft, 2 to 3 minutes.n

  • Pour vinegar into the pan and stir to deglaze, scraping any browned bits off the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon. Add honey and salt and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer until thickened and reduced by half, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool before serving.n

Cook's Notes:

You can use frozen raspberries (with no juice) instead of fresh, if you prefer.

For a clear glaze, strain through a fine-mesh strainer, pressing on the solids with the back of a spoon to extract as much liquid as possible.
