Ancho Chili Peach Blender BBQ Sauce is sweet and tangy with a touch of spicy heat.

Ancho Chili Peach Blender BBQ Sauce 1

I used to think that most people either fall into the creamy condiment camp (like mayo) or the sweet/tangy condiment camp (like ketchup, honey mustard, and BBQ sauce). That’s because until about five years ago when I discovered the bliss that is homemade mayo (not to mention how insanely easy it is to make), mayo just wasn’t my thing.

I’ve been converted to the mayo camp, but I can always get behind a good ketchup or BBQ too. They serve different purposes, am I right?

When it comes to BBQ sauce, I like mine to have a nice balance of sweet, heat, and tang; add fruity flavor notes like peach, and there’s just about nothing I won’t put it on. Chicken, omelets, salads, hot dogs, burgers, potatoes, and even toast are all pretty delicious with a drizzle of this sauce. I keep discovering new things to use it on.

The best part is, this sauce is incredibly easy to whip up in the blender! Everything just gets pureed together, no need to even strain it. The peaches add a nice thickness to the sauce even before it’s cooked. You could use the sauce straight out of the blender, but I like to give it a quick stint (about 20 minutes) on the stovetop to help all the flavors blend and thicken it up even more. Stash it in the fridge overnight and the next day once all the flavors have married, it’s even better. If you’re looking for an easy BBQ sauce to kick up your BBQ game, this is it!

So, are you a condiment person? And if so, what’s your favorite?

Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Yield: About 3 cups
Ancho Chili Peach Blender BBQ Sauce is sweet and tangy with a touch of spicy heat.
  • 2 dried whole ancho chile peppers, stems and seeds removed
  • 2-4 dried whole chile de árbol peppers, seeds removed (or 1 to 3 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes instead)
  • ½ cup (120 ml) boiling water
  • 2 large very ripe peaches, pitted
  • 1 large onion, peeled and halved
  • 6 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 5-6 tablespoons pure honey
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce (see Note for paleo-friendly version)
  • 1 teaspoon smoked sweet paprika
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground mustard powder
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 3 whole cloves
  1. Toast the chilies in a dry skillet over medium heat until fragrant. Transfer to a small bowl and pour the boiling water on top; steep for 3 minutes.
  2. Add the chilies and their steeping liquid along with all other ingredients to a high-speed blender and process until completely smooth.
  3. Use as-is, or to help blend the flavors, transfer the sauce to a medium saucepan; bring up to a simmer and cook (uncovered) 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cool to room temperature.
  4. Store covered in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
Paleo-Friendly Version: Omit the Worcestershire sauce or make your own homemade paleo-friendly Worcestershire sauce and use that.

    My most
    Used kitchen tool would have to be my knives – I’m much more of a knife person than a food processor person. There’s something about working with the ingredients I’m using and my knives that is contemplative and even therapeutic for me.
