I’m feeling a little–I don’t know–spicy. Is that something you can feel? Like you need to spice your food up…make it a little more fun than it was yesterday? Meh, I don’t care if it’s a “normal” term. I feel spicy and I want to make my food more fun. There. It’s done. Put it out in the world and everything. Step one to making my summer food more fun: Easy Chipotle & Chocolate BBQ Sauce. You can start drooling now…I won’t tell.
See, I had been wanting to make something yummy with Chipotle and Chocolate for a while. I love the way those two flavors come together. And the KC Masterpiece® BBQ Sauce Mix & Dry Rub made it possible–and made some slow cooker country ribs SO. FREAKIN’. AWESOME.
So, though I’d engineered the idea of chocolate and chipotle coming together on my tongue, I didn’t know how to bring them together. But, apparently, the answer was just sitting there; on the condiment aisle calling my name…I couldn’t help myself. The KC Masterpiece® BBQ Sauce Mix & Dry Rub had to be mine. Mine, I tell you! LOL! And, I was super excited to find out that two pouches makes 16 oz of BBQ sauce!
Is it calling your name yet? Are you thinking about the possibilities? Heh.
Let’s bust-out this recipe and see if it sparks your imagination…
Easy Chipotle & Chocolate BBQ Sauce
- 2 packages 1 box KC Masterpiece® BBQ Sauce Mix & Dry Rub
- 16 oz. 1 package milk or dark chocolate
- 2 tblspn chipotle powder
- 1 tblspn cinnamon
- 2 tblspn oil optional
Place chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave at 30-second increments, stirring between until the chocolate is fully melted and smooth.
In a second bowl (while the chocolate is in the microwave), mix the KC Masterpiece® BBQ Sauce Mix & Dry Rub, chipotle and cinnamon together thoroughly.
When chocolate is ready, mix spice mixture into the chocolate.
If the chocolate becomes lumpy or is not as liquidy as you'd like (ie. it doesn't pour), then add oil and stir until the mixture is the consistency you prefer. The reason for this is the chocolate--some chocolate just needs that little extra oil to be pourable after putting in additives (even food coloring--LOL!).
I used this both to cook my country style pork ribs and to dip them in after they were cooked. I recommend BOTH. LOL!
