How to make the Coca-Cola chipotle BBQ sauce

  1. Sauté the chopped onion and garlic in your preferred vegetable oil over medium heat until soft.
  2. Add the coriander, cumin, smoked paprika, cayenne pepper and fry off until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  3. Add the tomato puree, chipotles, vinegar and Coca-Cola and stir to incorporate thoroughly, scraping up any bits from the bottom of the pot.
  4. Let simmer, uncovered, until thickened – it should coat the back of a wooden spoon – for 20 to 30 minutes.
  5. Season with salt and cracked pepper to taste.
  6. Makes about 1.5 litres. The sauce will keep in the fridge up to two weeks.
