A little heat, a little sweet
Yes, ketchup is an invaluable condiment. There are many times that it’s my preferred choice for dipping or topping. Sometimes, though, you need to mix things up. For example, my coconut crusted sweet potato fries. Dipping these semi-exotic fries in a basic condiment seemed a waste of their fanciness. Thus, it was time to create a dip.
I’ve made other dips that have the sweet and spicy blend. My original version was made with chili powder and maple syrup and is just fine. However, maple syrup isn’t necessarily an ingredient kept on hand, and using chili powder can make the dip a bit grainy. With those two thoughts in mind, I decided to try for a smoother, more pantry-friendly dip.
As you may note in the title, I used Cholula hot sauce. This isn’t a sponsored post, and I have not pledged allegiance to the brand. It simply was the hot sauce I had on hand and like. If you use Tabasco, Frank’s, or what have you, feel free to substitute. The most important thing is to use hot sauce. You want to add spice and keep the dip smooth.
Having created this dip for fries, I made only a small batch. But as I nibbled (devoured) my fries, I wondered what else this sauce could be used for. It would make a nice spread for a chicken sandwich, topping for quesadillas, or dressing for taco salad. Whatever you choose, it’s a fair healthy condiment with lots of flavor.
- ½ cup Greek yogurt
- 1 Tb. Cholula
- 2 tsp. honey
- ⅛ tsp. cinnamon
- Combine yogurt, Cholula, honey, and cinnamon in a small bowl; mix well.
