Chocolate BBQ Sauce

Chocolate BBQ Sauce

Ingredients

  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 T. apple cider vinegar
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can fire roasted tomatoes
  • 1 ounce (1 piece) Honey Mama’s Mayan Spice Cacao-Nectar bar, roughly chopped
  • ¼ cup strong coffee
  • 2 T. coconut sugar
  • 2 tsp. chili powder
  • 2 tsp. mustard powder
  • ½ tsp. coriander powder
  • ¼ tsp. cumin powder
  • ⅛ tsp. cinnamon powder
  • Salt & freshly ground black pepper to taste (our favorite salt is Jacobsen Salt’s Spicy Salt Set)

Directions

Heat a bit of olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add onions, and cook until soft, 4-6 minutes. Add garlic, and cook for another 30 seconds. Stir in vinegar, tomatoes, chocolate, coffee, coconut sugar, and spices. Bring to a simmer and cook until slightly thickened, about 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat, and pour the mixture into a high-speed blender (I used a Vita-Mix), and blend until smooth.
