All of this sunshine has been great for pool days and barbecues. It has also had me inside in the air conditioning experimenting with sauces to barbecue with. I am obsessed with the basil cream sauce that I originally made for my Roasted Tomato & Basil Turkey Burgers, but I also wanted to come up with some new barbecue sauce ideas. I love making barbecue sauces because they are so easy to make yourself and you can add what ever you want to them to create a new, unique sauce.
I love spicy food, so I wanted to make a spicy barbecue sauce. The only thing was that I feel like I always use adobo to add spice to my barbecue sauces. This time I decided to be adventurous and try a new idea for my sauce- green chiles. I wasn’t sure if it would taste completely weird with the sauce, but I decided to go for it anyway, and I am glad I did. This barbecue sauce does not seem super spicy right off the bat, but grows on you while you eat with it. By the end of the steak I was surprised how hot my mouth was. It also has a very unique flavor from the green chiles and lime juice that most barbecue sauces won’t give you. If you feel like adding some spice and adventure to your barbecue, I would definitely recommend trying this sauce.
