This stellar sauce is smoky from the adobo and tangy from the cider vinegar. It's great on beef and pork.

  1. 2 chipotles in adobo, seeded
  2. 1/2 cup ketchup
  3. 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  4. 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
  5. 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  6. 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  1. In a food processor, combine all of the ingredients and puree until smooth. Scrape into a small saucepan and simmer for 2 minutes, until glossy. Use on chicken, pork and beef.
