Amazing 2 Ingredient BBQ Sauce Recipe

This post is brought to you by Musselman’s Apple Butter. I received a promotional package to use in the writing of the post. Regardless, all opinions are the honest awesome truth.

We are BBQ snobs in our house! I know that sounds harsh, but it’s hard to find good BBQ so we usually just make our own and it’s usually awesome. Our normal BBQ sauce completes many of the tried and true recipes our family loves, so I was a bit skeptical when Musselman’s sent me a few recipes to try out and one of them was for Quick BBQ Sauce. I have to admit, the sauce was amazing. Plus, it only takes 2 ingredients and is full of flavor!  Chili Sauce and  Musselman’s Apple Butter and your set to go. I used the BBQ sauce in my sausage bites recipe, but you could use it in any recipe that called for BBQ sauce. 


1 Cup Apple Butter 

1 Cup Chili Sauce

Mix well and serve hot or cold. 

Spice it up by adding 1/2 cup hot sauce!

YUM! This BBQ sauce is so versatile you can use it in so many different recipes. Check out Musselman’s Apple Butter game-day YouTube video for more great recipe pairings! Oh & don’t forget there’s a giveaway at the bottom of the page.

    I have never made my own BBQ sauce but your certainly is easy enough. I could absolutely see apple butter as the right flavor for it. Thank you for sharing.

    Wow, that sounds really good. But, I love apple butter so much that stuff would not make it long enough in my house for me to make BBQ sauce from it. LOL

    I love plain apple butter in a jar. I tried jarring my own one time, but it did not come out as good as our local Amish apple butter. I spread it on toast!
