  • 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 2 canned chipotle chile peppers in adobo sauce, finely chopped (see Tip)
  • ¼ cup chopped onion
  • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. In a medium saucepan, combine tomato sauce, chile peppers, onion, vinegar, honey, garlic, salt, and black pepper. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 5 to 10 minutes or until slightly thickened. Serve with desired meat (see Tip).
  • Tip: Because chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the peppers, wash your hands and nails well with soap and warm water.
  • Suggested Meats: Serve with cooked chicken, beef, or pork.
