Arby's Bronco Berry Sauce
By Todd Wilbur

Recipe Type: Sauce
Calories: 120
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Recipe Rating: 5.0 (13 reviews)

This sweet and spicy jelly sauce comes on the side, in little 1.5-ounce containers, with Arby's battered jalapeno and cheese Side Kickers. But, you know, you just never get enough of the good stuff in those little one-serving dipping packs to use later with your own home-cooked delicacies. And isn't it odd that the sauce is called Bronco Berry when there's not a berry to be found in there? Sure, the sauce is bright red and sugary, but you wont find a speck of fruit on the ingredients list. Nevertheless, the sweet and spicy flavors make this a great jelly sauce that has many uses beyond dipping quick-service finger foods. For one, use it as a delicious substitute for mint jelly with your next batch of lamb chops.

I use cooked, chopped turkey or chicken with salad dressing added, for sandwiches. Great for Holidays leftovers. They wouldn't be the same without bronco Berry sauce. Thank you!

Husband loves this sauce...and this recipe. I was a bit put off by the ingredients (not a berry to be seen), but if you want the original sauce, this is how to get it.
