A lovely brick-red chili sauce that tastes good on everything (chicken, beef, turkey, sandwiches made with the above and probably vanilla ice cream). It's fast and easy to make, it's highly adaptable and uses everyday ingredients.
I made this one day after marinating a flank steak in a mixture of orange juice and cumin. I poured the marinade into a saucepan and reduced it, and decided to add chili powder for kick. Half a dozen batches later, and I think I have a recipe down.
You have to be sure that the sauce is brick red and a bit syrupy. To test this, take a cold spoon and dip it into the sauce. If it drips quickly, it's not ready yet. Feel free to expand the recipe and add other things- this is a speedy recipe that can be made while something else is cooking.
