Benito’s Spicy Barbecue Sauce

Naranja based barbecue sauce  

I like to make my own barbecue sauce using the following mixture:

  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tbspn organic paprika
  • 1/3 cup vinegar
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tbspn olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 1 tspn dried crushed habaneros (use cayennes for a tamer sauce)
  • 1 tbspn honey
  • 2 tspn chili powder
  • 1/4 tspn cinnamon
  • 2 tbspn Benito’s Original Naranja

Finely chop, mince, or mash the garlic and saute’ in olive oil in a medium sized pan (on low/medum heat) for about 3 minutes. Add other ingredients. Let the mixture mellow out for about twenty minutes on low/ medium heat. Add the Naranja last and stir repeatedly for a nice blend.  Now you have your sauce, so just use a nice BBQ Brush to apply to meats before, during and after cooking.
