Spice up your backyard cookout with this Candied Jalapeño BBQ Sauce — full of spicy flavor that’s perfect on ribs, burgers or oven baked potatoes!
I truly can’t think of anything better than a slightly spicy, slightly sweet, and smoky BBQ sauce that everyone goes wild for.
I mean, is there anything better than BBQ sauce?
Ask most kids and they’ll probably tell you that ketchup rules. But for me, and most of the others in my home I think I’m safe to say that BBQ sauce is the winner of all.
Or simply grill up a nice, juicy burger and slather this stuff all over the top.
Candied Jalapeño BBQ Sauce
The best part about this sauce is that it comes together quite easily with ingredients that do “double duty”. Simply start out by making some candied jalapeños — but instead of dumping the leftover liquid, use it for this slightly spicy sauce.
You’ll have homemade BBQ sauce now.
And candied jalapeños for later. Easy peasy!
If you are concerned with this sauce being too “hot” in spice factor, don’t worry. The candied jalapeños, though spicy, give it some kick – but not enough to set off your internal smoke alarm.
Combine all of the ingredients on the stovetop and simmer for a few minutes. Then use your immersion blender to gently blend the sauce until the jalapenos are nice and smooth.
Gently pour into your favorite jar (a pint jar works well).
If you are looking for a thinner sauce, then feel free to add more of the liquid leftover from the candied jalapeños to thicken out the final sauce.
