Bloody Mary Ketchup

Bloody Mary Ketchup

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.

Jalapeño Ketchup

 Fresh jalapeños for a garden grassy bite…

Have a few extra jalapeño peppers around or just looking for a spicy alternative to everyday ketchup? Fuel your favorite condiment with a fresh, grassy bite. Jalapeño ketchup tastes great on grilled burgers and hot dogs (if you are one of “those” ketchup-on-hot-dog people. PS: We are too!) And make sure to leave a little to side as this makes one heck of a fry dipper.

If you prefer something smokier, check out our chipotle ketchup recipe. Or if you want something a little more exotic, give this delicious curry ketchup recipe a whirl.

jalapeño lime vinaigrette

Jalapeño Lime Vinaigrette

A versatile spicy condiment…

The first time you make this jalapeño lime vinaigrette, it’ll probably be for a salad. But the minute you taste it, you’ll see there’s a lot more potential than greens for this yummy spicy dressing. It’s delicious as a marinade for fish (whether grilled or as a topper for fish tacos) and it’s a real flavor booster for grilled chicken (we especially like it as a alternative spicy dipping sauce for chicken satay).

If you want a step up in heat, you can try this recipe with serrano peppers instead of jalapeños. They have a similar bright, grassy flavor, but with a noticeable heat jump (but still within a medium-heat, eatable range).
