Homemade Datil BBQ Sauce

I love making homemade condiments. You get to decide how much sugar and what kind, the sodium level, etc. This has to be better for you than store bought stuff full of chemicals, colors, etc. The datils give this a nice little kick. You could leave them out or sub a different pepper.

  • 2 (8 ounce) cans tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup honey or agave
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire (use a vegan brand)
  • 2 teaspoons liquid smoke
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly-ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 datil peppers

Add ingredients to your blender.

Blend until peppers are smooth.

Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer uncovered about 20 minutes, or until it's the consistency you like. Pour into a jar and refrigerate. Keep refrigerated.
