While out shopping one day, I went into a store that had a section of random food items, one of which was a bottled chipotle plum sauce. So out of curiosity; I bought a bottle. I served the sauce with broiled tilapia for dinner one night and my daughter loved it. Actually, she raved about it. Unfortunately, when I returned to the store to buy more bottles of the sauce, there were none left. So I decided to make it myself.
This sauce is so flavorful and versatile; its uses are limitless. We’ve used it with chicken, fish, pork, as a dipping sauce for egg rolls, crab Rangoon, toasted ravioli, basically anywhere we’ve wanted something sweet, spicy and slightly sticky. The sugar to acid ratio is just right, and not as overly sugary as some bottled sauces can be. Even more importantly, its daughter approved!
