Blackberry Chipotle Sauce

Blackberries are one of more than 300 known varieties of berries and Mexico is one of the top 5 world exporters of this fruit. Some types of berries were already appreciated and used in prehispanic times in rituals and offerings. Today, Cocina Mestiza offers you a sauce that combines the tangy taste of blackberries with the smokey aroma of chipotle peppers resulting in an artfully combined flavor that goes well with a great variety of dishes such as meat, poultry, cheese and salads.
