Mango BBQ Sauce

Does anyone else love BBQ Sauce like I do? I think I could slather it on any and everything; Chicken, Pizza, Hamburgers, Ribs, Eggs {ok, maybe not eggs}, but definitely some veggies. This Mango BBQ Sauce is absolutely delicious. I first made it to go with my Hawaiian Pizza on the Grill as a base sauce. We had this awesome Mopsy Pizza while in Maui and as an attempt to replicate the pizza I needed to make this Mango BBQ sauce. In order to double check my flavor I had my Mother in Law stop over and try it to be sure that I was on point with the taste and she loved it! {Just a warning it does have a bit of a punch because of the chili paste, but it’s so good}

After eating the Hawaiian Pizza I realized this BBQ Sauce is so versatile and needed its own post. It can be used as a marinade, a base sauce, a condiment for a hamburger or sandwich, or a dip. {when I say dip I think of pouring it over some cream cheese and scooping it up with crackers… yum!}

To get started, dice {chop into small pieces} 1/2 red onion, 2 garlic cloves, and 2 ripe mangoes.

    I used to work at Flatbread on Maui and The Mopsy is by far the most popular pie! Glad to see it inspired this post! I’ll definitely try this recipe.

    Welcome to Krista. I took a good look at your photos and articles. I see You are very creative. I like to eat spicy so can mix chili into it?

    Oh goodness, I have just made your amazing mango barbecue sauce! It is INCREDIBLE!!! I had been looking for a pineapple mango sauce and was able to use your recipe to make exactly what I had in mind. The balance was perfect and the sweet:heat ratio was just right. Thank you, thank you! (It’s a beautiful color as well!)
