2tablespoons (40g)regular molasses (not blackstrap)can be found at walmart, many stores

3tablespoons (45g)worcestershire sauce (I buy a vegan one, Annie's, from whole foods or sprouts)

1 1/2tablespoonsregular American chili powder
1/2teaspoon ground black pepper
optional: 1/2 teaspoon ground espresso
Add all of the ingredients to a blender or food processor and process until smooth.
Add to a pot over medium heat. Once it begins to simmer, cook for 3-5 minutes, whisking continuously until the spices cook through and it is warmed throughout.
This bbq sauce is delicious right away, of course, but the flavors truly enhance to amazing flavor by the next day after chilling overnight! I love to use this over pinto beans and heat through or over veggie burgers, fries, potatoes, etc.
