Clean, homemade paleo peach chipotle barbecue sauce is paleo & Whole30 compliant! Sweet peaches, fiery chipotle peppers, and tangy apple cider combine in this explosive, guilt-free BBQ sauce.
Recipe type: Sauce
Serves: 3 cups
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 shallot, peeled and diced
  • 3 cups frozen or fresh peach slices, (about 21 slices)
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 2 chipotle peppers, (from canned chipotle peppers in adobo)
  • ¼ cup tomato paste
  • 1 tsp. salt, plus more to taste
  • ¼ tsp. onion powder
  • ¼ tsp. garlic powder
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Optional: 1 Tbsp. honey, (if you aren't doing the Whole30 and don't mind a little added natural sugar!)
  1. Heat olive oil in a medium-sized saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the diced shallot, and cook about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until translucent and golden brown.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients to the pot. Raise the heat to medium-high, and stir as it comes to a boil.
  3. Keep stirring as the sauce cooks down and thickens for about 5 minutes.
  4. Using an immersion blender, (you can also transfer the sauce to a regular blender or food processor) CAREFULLY blend the sauce until smooth and lump-free. Be extremely careful of hot splatters!
  5. Return the sauce in the pot over low heat, and let simmer until it reaches the perfect consistency. It should coat the back of a spoon, but still be pourable. If it's too thin, keep simmering; if it's too thick, just add a little bit of water until it's the right consistency.
  6. Taste for seasoning, and add salt and pepper as needed.
  7. You can use this immediately, but the longer it can sit and marry the flavors, the better! It will also keep well in the fridge for several days in an airtight container.
