Description

A sweet and hot-at-the-end BBQ sauce. The kick to this hot sauce is at the end but not that overpowering.

Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 habanero peppers, chopped
  • ⅓ cup bourbon whiskey (such as Maker's Mark®)
  • 3 fresh apricots, pitted and sliced
  • 2 (6.5 ounce) cans tomato sauce
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • ½ tablespoon dried oregano
  • ½ tablespoon Spanish paprika
  • ½ tablespoon chili powder
  • ½ tablespoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
Directions
  1. 1. Heat olive oil in a pot over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook until translucent, 3 to 5 minutes. Add habanero peppers. Pour bourbon into the pot and bring to a boil while scraping the browned bits of food off the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon. Stir in apricots, followed by tomato sauce. Stir in brown sugar, vinegar, oregano, paprika, chili powder, salt, and black pepper. Simmer for 20 to 30 minutes.
  2. 2. Remove from heat and let cool, 20 to 30 minutes.
  3. 3. Blend using an immersion blender or transfer carefully into the bowl of a food processor or blender and blend until smooth.
