I am in love! It is a sweet love with a kick. A love that does take a bit of work but rewards are worth the effort. Spicy Sweet Chili Sauce is not difficult just step heavy.
Apple cider vinegar replaced rice vinegar in equal amounts, sugar was reduced by two tablespoons, soy sauce was doubled, cayenne pepper was omitted, and sambal oelek was reduced to one and half tablespoons.
Scaled for Likability: Great
Great, as in can I just eat this from a spoon great? Great, as in yes, I did eat this from the spoon, and the spatula, and off my fingers when I spilled it pouring from the pot in to the jar. Great, as in a second batch was made as soon as dinner was done to ensure there was enough for a few weeks. So long Sriracha, hello Sweet Chili Sauce. Ok, maybe not as Sriracha is pure heat and this is sweet heat. My heart has room for two.
