Texas Style BBQ Sauce

Forget fancy frills, Texas BBQ is about big flavors. We start with tomato for a rich base, then crank up the flavor with chili powder, coriander, and a touch of brown sugar sweetness. A splash of apple cider vinegar adds a subtle tang, while a touch of dijon mustard brings depth. We also add a secret Texas twist of creamy Bongards® Yellow Super Melt™ American Loaf for a rich, unforgettable taste. This isn’t your ordinary BBQ sauce, it’s Texas in a bottle. This sauce works great as a base for mac and cheese or on BBQ sandwiches or wings, but the possibilities are endless.
