In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil over med-high heat. Add the onion to the pot and cook until softened, approximately 4-5 minutes. Stir in the garlic and chopped chilis. Cook for 1-2 minutes longer or until the garlic is fragrant.
Stir in the paprika, chili powder, cayenne pepper, onion powder, dry mustard, adobo sauce, honey and cider vinegar. Cook for 1 minute. Add the tomato sauce, ketchup, molasses and worcestershire sauce, stirring to combine.
Turn the heat to low and allow the sauce to simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Using an immersion blender, puree the sauce until almost smooth. (I like to leave a little chunkiness but you do you.)
Cool the sauce to room temperature before transferring to an airtight container. Can be made up to 1 week in advance and stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
Sauce can be canned using traditional canning techniques or frozen in an airtight container for up to 6 months.
