This is a recipe from I have adapted it for our family.

Chipolte BBQ Sauce

6 chipotle chiles

1 cup boiling water
1 onion, chopped
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup water
1 (12 ounce) can tomato paste
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon coconut aminos
1 1/2 teaspoons cumin
1 1/2 teaspoons thyme
1 1/2 teaspoons dry mustard
1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce

Place the chiles in the 1 cup of boiling water. Let soak for 1 hour. Remove stems and seeds and chop finely. Melt butter in a saucepan and add onion, garlic, cumin and thyme. Saute until the onion is soft and translucent. Add chiles (with the water), and remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 30 minutes. Transfer to a blender and process until smooth.

*If using canned chipotles, I found six to be too spicy.  Try three and add more if it's not hot enough for you!  We prefer the La Morena brand of chipotles to all others we've tried.
