Mango BBQ Sauce

Summer is almost here!!  I'm getting ready to dust off the grill and start cooking outside.  This BBQ sauce is perfect for all your summer cooking, sweet with a little heat and so tangy from the mangos and apple cider vinegar.  Brush on grilled portobellos and veggies or use with your favorite BBQ recipes! 

Happy Memorial Day!
