Chipotle Raspberry Sauce

I guess I’ve been on a bit of a sweet and spicy kick lately . . . but this sauce is so good. I made it because we bought a bottle of it from TJ Maxx once and absolutely loved it, so of course we wanted to try a DIY version. This sauce makes a great appetizer when poured over a block of cream cheese and eaten with crackers. You can also brush it on salmon, chicken, and pork during their final few minutes of cooking to give them a delicious glaze. In a few days, I’ll post a surprise recipe that uses this sauce!

Serves: Makes about 1½ cups
Ingredients
  • • 2 6-oz containers of raspberries

Instructions
  1. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. When it is hot, add the minced jalapeno and cook for several minutes until it is soft.
  2. Add the lemon juice and stir. Be careful - it may splatter.
  3. Stir in the raspberries, honey, chipotle peppers, and adobo sauce. Mash the raspberries with the back of a spoon to thicken the sauce. Turn the heat down to low and let it simmer until it has achieved desired consistency.
