BBQ Sauce-Roasted Veggie

Lynn Socko


Thought I'd try roasting some peppers and veggies to add to my sauce instead of adding them raw and simmering them. I really love the flavor of this combination. Any source of heat, such as habanero or jalapeno could also be roasted and added, or any type of hot chili powder could be added to heat this up. Also bottled hot sauce could be added during simmering. I started with a non hot sauce and can doctor it up each time I use it.
