Two Pepper BBQ Sauce Recipe

Two Pepper BBQ Sauce Recipe

This is my personal recipe for BBQ sauce, very chunky and fresh. The secret is the celery, which adds a salty crunchiness to the sauce. I always have some on hand in the fridge. Great on ribs, steak, and my husband really loves it on cold roasted chicken.


Two Pepper BBQ Sauce Recipe



  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 large rib celery with leaves, chopped
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, seeded and sliced
  • 2 long red dried chilies (chile de arbol),stem removed, seeds reserved
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup vinegar
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp. dry prepared mustard
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar


In a saucepan, sauté onion, celery, and bell pepper in olive oil. Add dried chiles, and a few of the seeds (the more seeds you add, the spicier the resulting sauce). Add the garlic, and sauté for about 3 more minutes. Add remaining ingredients, and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat, and let stand for 10 minutes.

Puree mixture in food processor, making sure no large pieces remain.
