Sauce is very spicy. Serve in small amounts with eggs, pork, etc.
12-15 dried chipotle chiles, stemmed and deseeded
3 cups water
1/2 medium onion, sliced
6 Tbs ketchup
1/2 tsp salt
2 cloves garlic, coarsely minced
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
honey, brown sugar, or maple syrup (optional)
Split the chiles lengthwise and remove the seeds.
Add onion pieces to a saute pan with some olive oil and saute for 5 minutes until the onions sweat. Add the rest of the ingredients to the pan, and simmer in a partially covered pan for one hour, stirring occasionally or until liquid reduces to about a cup. Place chiles and sauce in a blended and puree. Add honey or other sweetener to taste.
