A zesty take on the classic condiment…
This one is a no-brainer for Bloody Mary fans: Turn your classic ketchup into a zesty condiment version of the popular cocktail! It’s tangy, peppery, and fiery – like a good spicy Bloody Mary should be. This is a delicious traditional ketchup alternative for french fries, burgers, and hot dogs.
Horseradish is the predominant heat source here, so start there if you’re looking to control the heat. The Tabasco sauce and paprika are drops in the bucket compared to the spice of that prepared horseradish. Of course, if you want a little more of that Lousiana vinegar tang from Tabasco, throw an extra dash or two into the mix too.
Bloody Mary Ketchup
- In a bowl, combine all ingredients and stir well.
- Use immediately, or for best flavor chill the ketchup (covered) in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 hours minimum prior to use to allow the flavors to meld.
While Tabasco sauce and paprika are present in this recipe, the spiciness here comes mainly from horseradish. Control the heat by increasing/decreasing the amount of horseradish first.
