Adobo Negro Sauce

The perfect complement to your plancha-grilled seafood and pork, this hybrid Mexican sauce borrows flavor from spicy adobo and complexly flavored mole negro sauces. Rich and thick, this Mexican sauce is made with Stout beer, piloncillo (a raw form of unprocessed pure cane sugar), Chipotle pepper, black sesame seeds and, of course, garlic and onion.
