BULL'S-EYE Smokin' Chipotle BBQ Sauce

I almost never advocate for the commercial giant brand, and that would most definitely be due to the fact that they usually suck.

Kraft Foods however seems to have done us right. Aside from some high fructose corn syrup the ingredients are pretty clean, although I don't see chipotle peppers in the ingredients:

Ingredients: Tomato Puree, HFCS, Molasses, Vinegar, Salt, Modified Food Starch (less than 2%), Natural Smoke Flavor, Mustard Flour, Dried Onions, Spice, Dried Garlic.

The aroma of this sauce is smoky and sweet and you can clearly detect the molasses onion and garlic.

The sauce is quite flavorful with plenty of smoke to cut some of the sweetness, however the heat level is definitely that of a grocery store brand. If you are a total Chipotle-head you will need to fortify with more peppers to meet your needs.

Overall this is pretty good eating sauce and at the average price of $2.99 for 18oz. it is certainly budget friendly. If your looking for a decent grocery store brand that has the kick of smoky chipotle peppers(spice), BULL'S-EYE Smokin' Chipotle BBQ Sauce is worth a try.

Kraft's Bullseye website gives us the following recipe to showcase thier BBQ sauce:

Sizzlin' Chipotle Cheddar Burger

Prep: 10 min.
Total: 25 min.
Makes: 4 servings, one cheeseburger each.

1 lb. ground beef

4 KRAFT DELI DELUXE Sharp Cheddar Cheese Slices
4 lettuce leaves

PREHEAT greased grill to medium-high heat. Mix meat, onions and garlic; shape into four patties.
