My husband loves to barbecue and he is a big fan of spicy stuff so I decided to combine the two for a delicious Father’s Day gift.  I’ve never made my own BBQ sauce, but I was surprised at how simple it was to make.  I found a basic recipe in my Betty Crocker Cookbook, and just tweaked it a bit to make it the perfect combination of spicy with just a hint of sweet.

Kick things up a notch and put this on your favorite meat before you throw it on the grill.  We tried it out with chicken and it was delish!

Since presentation is key I created simple labels and gift tags for this Spicy Chipotle BBQ sauce.  My kids and I use the phrase “Awesomesauce” to describe anything we love or things that are “cool.” It makes them giggle every time I say it.  And because we think our Dad is pretty awesome we think he will love his Father’s Day Awesomesauce!
