This Gluten Free Sweet & Spicy Chili Sauce is perfect for dipping – whether it’s pot stickers, crusted baked shrimp or vegetable tempura – it’s sweet and spicy flavor will enhance any dish.
Do you love dipping sauces? I know I do.
Think about it. Chips and dip? Check. French fries? Check. Hot Wings? Check. Baked Artichokes? Check. Crudites? Check.
All dippable, dunkable and have a need to get sauced. 🙂
Which is exactly how this sauce came to be. Because I have a recipe coming on Monday that this sauce is perfect for.
And, as usual, it has the sweet & spicy combo we all know and love, because I wouldn’t want to disappoint you.
I don’t know about you, but I have this deep, burning part of me that just can’t let a sweet/savory sauce pass me by. I swear if I was driving on a road to nowhere, I’d be stopping at every roadside sauce place on the planet earth, hoping that the road would never end.
I guess on a road to nowhere, I’d be in luck and traveling forever, right? Booyah! Sauce heaven! 🙂
What you’ll also love about it is, that it’s really easy to make. Essentially you add all the ingredients to a blender and blitz them until fully blended.
I’m all about the simple recipes on weeknights. The ones that can be done in 30 minutes or less. How about you? Are you in for the quick, easy recipes so that you can get on with other things in life? I thought so!
Now, if you’ve read this far, you’ve been given a bit of a hint of a recipe that’s coming next week (p.s. it’s one of my favorite things!). So, be sure to make this sauce so that you are ready.
Oh, one more thing!
What I also love about sauces is that they’re so multi-dimensional. Take this one for example. This particular Gluten Free Sweet & Spicy Chili Sauce is amazing on Pork Pot Stickers, perfect for Crispy Baked Shrimp, fabulously suited for veggie-filled Spring Rolls and even Crispy Cheese Sticks or Zucchini Sticks.
Who knows, it may even be good on Chicken & Waffles. Just sayin’. One will never know unless we try it.
