Okay, enough whining...promise. Now that you are thanking your lucky stars I'm not teaching your kids, let me distract you with a super yummy recipe! ;)
My aunt sends me text messages with pictures she takes of recipes she thinks I might like ... yup, she's too cute for words. This barbecue sauce recipe was one that I couldn't wait to try. Mangoes and jalapenos ... love! It was perfect, and perfectly homemade (had a little texture to it). I adore it. It makes the house smell amazing too.
Best dishes and yummy dreams!
Thanks for letting me vent, friends! xo
Mango Jalapeno Barbecue Sauce
Recipe courtesy of: My Aunt Pam via USA Weekend Magazine www.weekend.com (Found in the Times Leader newspaper in NEPA)
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 small, sweet onion, diced
1 red bell pepper, diced
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. allspice
1/3 c. red wine vinegar
3 Tbsp. molasses
2 Tbsp. Worcestershire
2 Tbsp. lime juice
1/4 c. tomato sauce
1 1/2 c. diced mango (I used frozen chunks and thawed them)
2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and diced (reserve a few seeds to throw in for some spice!)
1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet and then add the onion and red pepper. Cook until the onion is translucent.
2. Add the garlic, salt, and allspice, and cook for 2 minutes more.
3. Stir in vinegar, molasses, Worcestershire, lime juice, and tomato sauce and cook for 1 minute more.
4. Transfer the mixture to a blender and add the mangoes and jalapenos (this is where I throw in a few seeds).
5. Blend until smooth!
I marinated thin chicken breasts in the BBQ sauce, grilled the chicken while basting with the sauce, and then used reserved sauce for dipping. We couldn't get enough!
