Mango Chipotle Barbeque Sauce

Kathy D


This recipe is from Lenard Rubin in the cookbook Savor the Southwest. This is an updated version of a classic Texas bbq. He likes to use this sauce during the last hour of bbq-ing beef short ribs, but it is equally delicious on chicken and pork. Have fun with it!
