Chipotle BBQ Sauce

Yield:  3 cups


1-2 chipotle chiles in adobo sauce

1 Tbsp adobo sauce

2 cups sweet, mild barbecue sauce

1/2 cup ketchup

1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

1 Tbsp molasses


Place the chipotles and half of the sauce in a blender of food processor.  Puree until smooth.  


Add the remaining ingredients and puree, again, until smooth.  Using a fine-mesh strainer, strain the mixture to remove all of the seeds.  Pour the sauce into a jar and set aside until ready to use.
