Mysterygirl's Chipotle Chili Ketchup

READY IN: 1hr 40mins
Recipe by riffraff

Mysterygirl was deserving a recipe in her honor and this is what I came up with. Sassy and spicy, just like her. I served this with seafood but would work well with other meats as well.

I made this for a friend's birthday present, he loves ketchup. He loved this recipe and has returned to jar to me already for a refill. The only thing I did differently was to run it through the Foley mill using the "fine" disk. This took out the skin and seeds. I also didn't use the entire 1/4 cup chipotle. That would be WAY too hot for me. Chipotle chiles in adobo is my favorite way of adding heat to a dish. I also run the entire can through the fine disk of the Foley mill to remove seeds then store the sauce in a jar in the frig. It keeps a very long time.
