  • 3 mini bottles Coca-Cola 8 ounces each
  • 1 1/2 cups ketchup
  • 3 chipotles in adobo save the rest of the can for another purpose
  • 3 cloves garlic peeled and minced or pressed through a garlic press
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  • Pour the Coca-Cola into a saucepan and place over high heat. Bring to a boil and reduce the Coca-Cola to about 1/3 of its original volume, or about 1 cup. Add the remaining ingredients, stirring well. Reduce the heat to medium. Bring to a boil again, lower the heat and simmer for 6 minutes until darker in colour and slightly thickened. Let the barbecue sauce cool slightly before running a stick blender through it to puree the chipotles in adobo into the sauce. After blending, transfer to a jar with a tight fitting lid. This can be served immediately, stored (tightly covered) in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks, or frozen for up to 6 months.
