Mango BBQ Sauce

Mango BBQ Sauce
(around 3 cups)


2 tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 cup Yellow Onion, diced (about 1 small onion)
1 cup Red Bell Pepper, seeded & diced (about 1 medium pepper)
3 cloves Fresh Garlic, rough chop
1 tsp. Salt
½ tsp. Black Pepper
½ tsp. Ground Allspice
1/3 cup Red Wine Vinegar
3 tbsp. Molasses
2 tbsp. Worcestershire Sauce
2 tbsp. Fresh Lime Juice
¼ cup tomato sauce (no-salt added)
1 ½ cups Fresh Mango, peeled, seeded & diced (about 1 medium mango)
2 Fresh Jalapeno Peppers, seeded & minced


In a large sauté pan over medium-high heat, add the oil and bring up to temperature.  Add the onion and cook remembering to stir a few times for about 3 minutes or until the onion is translucent.  Next, add the bell pepper, garlic, salt, pepper, and allspice to the pan and continue to cook another 2 minutes.  Stir in the vinegar, molasses, Worcestershire, lime juice and tomato sauce and cook 1 minute more.  Transfer the mixture to a blender or food processor and add the mango and jalapenos.  Pulse the mixture until smooth.  Pour into a container and refrigerate until needed.  Use part of sauce to marinade chicken or pork before grilling and remainder for after the food has been cooked.

Note:               Remember to discard the marinade used for the meat after your done marinating.  Only use the sauce not used to marinade meat for after cooking.
