I know it's un-American and I'm probably politically suspect for saying this but I don't really care all that much for Ketchup. What do I dip my fries in? Usually Tex-Mex Mayo, NurseDi's Tex-Mex Mayonnaise. I came across this at It seemed good so I gave it a try. At last a ketchup that I liked. It's from Bobby Flay but I've increased the spices. I can't help myself. The cooking time is melding time. The USDA has a formula for ketchup. If a company doesn't follow the "official" formula they can't call it ketchup. Buy the house brand.

  1. Squeeze the Ketchup into a blender.
  2. Add the chili powder and the zests.

  4. Pour into a zip lock bag, scrap the blender with a rubber spatula.
  5. Seal bag, cut one of the bottom corners from the bag and pipe the ketchup back into its bottle.
  6. It's best to let the flavors meld at least overnight.
