Mango chipotle BBQ sauce brings a Hawaiian tropical flair to your spicy BBQ, but with that smoky twist that chipotle peppers do oh so well. It’s a mix of sweet, smoke, and heat that really brings it to your taste buds – tangy and fruity, fiery and earthy.

This BBQ sauce works equally well with chicken, pork, or steak. And, like nearly all barbecue sauces, it makes an excellent dipper for chicken wings and chicken tenders.┬áIf you want a step up in heat (a pretty big step), take a look at our mango habanero BBQ sauce, too. It’s less smoky, but habanero peppers are a definite upgrade in fieriness.
