Homemade Sweet-Chili Sauce

I like a little sweet heat, don’t you?

Forget the bottled stuff — you can make a batch of this for pennies, and without the additives.

Say yes to homemade condiments!

    Sweet chili sauce is one of my favorite things to include in dishes! Can’t believe I’ve never thought to make it on my own! Great recipe! =)

    Can you say what kind of chilis these were? My grocery store has about six different kinds of red chilis — skinny Asian ones, fiery Mexican ones…

      SamSam — I was waiting for that question! And still I’m unsure how to answer…see the photo at the bottom of this post? Those are the chilis I used — does that help? The package doesn’t describe them as anything more specific than chilies…and I’m not a chili expert. That said, any dried chilis will do, it’s just a matter of adjusting the quantity. Start by leaving the seeds out. Once the sauce is finished and cooling, taste it for heat. Add some seeds for extra heat if you want — keeping in mind that the sauce will get hotter the longer you store it. Theresa

    Can I tell you how awesome you are for posting this recipe? Making your own is a great way to ensure your knows that what goes in as what you want to be ingesting.. and you can do it just the way you like. We have been inspired and even bought some mild dried chillies to make this due to your influence :)

    You cannot believe how excited I am about this one. You know how most people put ketchup on everything? In my household, we dunk everything in Thai Chili sauce. I love this recipe because you know that the stuff you get in the grocery store is probably full of colouring and unnatural stuff. This recipe is pure goodness. Thank you so much for sharing! I can’t wait to slather my veggies in it!
