Southwestern BBQ Sauce
The simple addition of a few chipotles in adobo sauce to what is normally just a great regular-ole tomato-based BBQ sauce really makes for a totally different, utterly fantastic sauce for ribs, chicken, pulled pork… you name it.

Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat.
Add the onions and saute until starting to soften, about 5 minutes.
Add the garlic and the chipotles and cook for 1 minute.
Deglaze the pan with the vinegar and lime juice.
Reduce heat and simmer until the liquid is reduced by half.
Add the adobo sauce, tomato sauce, molasses, mustard, bay leaves and salt.
Increase heat and bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer and continue simmering, stirring often, for 15-20 minutes or until the sauce is the desired thickness.
Remove from heat and let cool slightly before straining through a fine-mesh strainer.
