Spice up your traditional ketchup this summer with a semi home made spicy chipotle ketchup. You can put this on anything you would use with ketchup: french fries, veggie fries, hamburgers, chicken burgers, vegetable burgers, or even meatloaf!
This recipe for Spicy Chipotle Ketchup uses adobe chili peppers and some spices to kick up the flavor and heat. Although this uses some store bought ketchup to only enhance the flavors you could also go the one step further and make your own bottled ketchup.
Either way you will have a spicy ketchup that will elevate any outdoor barbecue burger. Home-made chipotle ketchup is another one of my recipes I am sharing with you for Memorial Day Weekend. You could also continue to use this all summer as BBQ’s often happen every weekend in my house. If you missed my first recipe for Memorial Day Weekend – Quinoa Tabbouleh Salad don’t forget to check it out.
What’s great is the fact you can store this for up to one month in the refrigerator in cute little mason jars or even give it away as a house warming gift as you enter someone’s house! Make sure they like spicy foods first. 🙂 It’s funny though because I really don’t like spicy foods that much but I really liked the flavor this spicy ketchup added to my chicken burgers!
