A tangy twist to BBQ…

The tangy, citrusy bite of orange is one of our favorite flavors to pair with pork on BBQ day. Now throwing chipotle pepper (one of our chili pepper favorites) into the mix, too, makes one delicious flavor pairing for the grill. It’s all good things in this orange chipotle sauce: tangy, smoky, earthy, and bold.

Don’t limit yourself to pork here (though yes, it’s oh so good with pork ribs). It also pairs well with grilled chicken, or you can use it as a dipper for chicken fingers for something different than the norm.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Using a blender or food processor, process all ingredients until smooth. Add additional chipotle powder and/or cayenne pepper powder, to taste and heat preference. Stir well.
  • Use immediately as a marinade for grilled chicken or pork or as a dipper.

Notes

The cayenne pepper powder is optional, but it's the best option for adding heat without additional smokiness. Cayenne tends to be more subtle in flavor than the smokier, earthier chipotle powder. Plus, it's at minimum four times hotter, so a little goes a long way to adding some punch to the sauce.
