Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 large onion, finely diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon crushed chipotle pepper flakes

  • 1 (24-ounce) bottle tomato ketchup
  • 1 cup apple juice or cider
  • 1/4 cup vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons yellow mustard

Directions

Heat the olive oil in a medium saucepan. Add the onion, garlic, salt, black pepper, chipotle pepper flakes, and ground cumin. Cook the mixture for 6 to 8 minutes, or until the onions are translucent and soft.
