Beef Burgers with Peanut-Chipotle Barbecue Sauce
Bobby Flay makes this extremely good barbecue sauce by spiking tomato puree with two forms of smoky chile–ancho chile powder and chipotle in adobo sauce—then adding peanut butter for sweetness. The sauce takes some time to prepare, but by doubling the recipe, it can be made in one large batch and kept in the refrigerator for up to two months.Plus: F&W's Grilling Guide 10 Great Burgers>
The barbecue sauce can be refrigerated for up to 2 months.
When it comes to hamburgers, any robust red wine is likely to pair well. But Flay's smoky-sweet chipotle-peanut barbecue sauce requires an intensely juicy, flavorful wine, such as a Primitivo from Southern Italy.
