An quick and easy recipe for barbecue sauce that you can whip up in a matter of minutes.
This week I am whipping up several of my favorite sauces, dips and dressings that are just as easy to make as they are to put a bottle in your shopping cart. Best part, they are homemade and have no extra additives that many of the store bought ones have.
This is a classic barbecue sauce that is sweet and tangy, perfect on just about anything. I love the flavor the smoky paprika adds to this sauce. All of the ingredients you should have already on hand so you can make this sauce anytime you need to add barbecue sauce to any dish. Once you make your own sauce, you’ll never want to pick up a bottle of store bought sauce again.
