Spicy Chipotle Barbecue Sausages

 
Happy weekend to ya!


















Last night my friend Sheryl and I went to Ambar for dinner, yum!! (I'll review soon). It was good stuff, plus I got to spend time with my girl, that's always fun. Then today PJ and I have been hanging out at home lounging, cleaning, and watching UFC shows getting ready for the UFC fight tonight. 

Oh, and making an app for the big game tomorrow. I wanted to make a lot more this week but time got away from me, but I was determined to make at least one more today. 


















That's where these lil guys come in.

I'm sure you've seen a version of these some way or another at a party of some sort or on the internet. The sweetness from the raspberry and the heat from the chipotles make these little sausage appetizers a hit in any home. Be sure to use seedless preserves (if that exists) or jam because seeds, well I hate them.

  • 2 chopped chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • 1 tablespoon adobo sauce

In a large pot, mix all ingredients. Heat to boiling over medium heat, then reduce heat to low and simmer uncovered for 20 minutes. Mix in water if sauce is too thick.

Serve on platter with sauce poured on top or served on the side.

You've still got time to make these for the Superbowl tomorrow, and if not they are perfect for any party, potluck, or gathering. Just put a toothpick in each one and make it so easy for your guests to grab one. And the kids will love them too, you may need to adjust the chipotle amount but what kid doesn't like little sausages? These are for kids and adults alike.

Hope you're all enjoying your weekends. I'm off Monday :)

Peace, and bacon grease!

How great, those in Argentina are called chorizos. Are part of the barbecue, but you can have it in a bus stop, for example. Like, the people eats this chorizos at everywhere. Are like argentinians hot dogs. I have stayed in an apartment for rent buenos aires and my roomate ate chorizos every day.

Ummm, mmm! Love this recipe! Anything chipotle sounds good and with the jam, it has to be great on the sausages. Great blog too!

You'd think by now I would have had enough party food. But nope. I still have room for these--they look delicious! I agree. Seeds would not be good. Thank you for linking with See Ya in the Gumbo this week.

The seedless jam makes a huge difference, doesn't it. Nothing worse than picking pits from your teeth.
