Dr. Pepper Chipotle BBQ Sauce

by Patricia Stagich

Cook Time: 45 min.

Keywords: BBQ sauce Dr. Pepper Chipotle summer

This amazing BBQ sauce has all the sweet and savory 
qualities and a little smokiness from the chipotle.

Ingredients (4 cups)

1 cup diced onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 can (12 oz.) plus 3/4 cup Dr. Pepper (2-1/4 cups total)
 You could also use Cherry Cola
1 12 oz. bottle chili sauce
1 cup black cherry preserves
1/3 cup cider vinegar
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
3 Tbsp. molasses
3 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1 Tbsp. minced chipotle in adobo sauce (you can 
add more if you like)
Salt and black pepper to taste


Sweat onion and garlic in oil in a medium saucepan 
over medium heat, 5-7 minutes. Add Dr. Pepper,
 chili sauce, preserves, vinegar, brown sugar, 
molasses, Worcestershire, lemon juice and chipotle;
 cook until thick and reduced to 4 cups, 
about 30 to 40 minutes. Season with salt and
 pepper. The sauce will be a little chunky. If you
 would rather have a smoother sauce, process in a
 blender to puree it.

Recipe for the Rub:
Classic BBQ Rub
1-1/2 tsp. sweet paprika
1 tsp. kosher salt
3/4 tsp. garlic powder
3/4 tsp. light brown sugar
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. black pepper
Combine all ingredients in a small bowl.

Thanks for looking
