Homemade Chili Sauce

A homemade substitute for Heinz chili sauce made with tomato sauce and paste, lemon juice and a mix of seasonings.

Homemade Chili Sauce

I was already nearly done with stacking groceries on the belt at the grocery store, when I remembered that a couple of recipes that I wanted to make use bottled chili sauce. Doesn't that always happen?

A quick glance near the checkout told me it wasn't gonna be close enough at hand to just do a run and grab, so rather than having to get back in a line for a couple of items (and probably finding another handful of things I really didn't need along the way), I decided I'd just go home and try to make up my own homemade version.

You may have noticed that I like using chili sauce in just a few recipes:




Really, it's a great substitute in many recipes where you would normally use a little ketchup.

Now... just to clarify, chili sauce is not what you think of when you think of the word "chili." There are also no beans involved in chili sauce such as with a product called chili beans, and it's also not the same as the red sauce that we use in some Tex-Mex dishes, such as red enchiladas. It's really a tomato based condiment, somewhat like a dressed-up ketchup I guess.


Now... I personally love the flavor of Heinz chili sauce, don't get me wrong. I've used it for years, I'll certainly continue to use it and it'll always be a handy go-to, but if you find yourself with a recipe that calls for it and you're in a bind and without, this sauce can be made up quickly, right from pantry ingredients you probably already have on hand.

I keep dollops of tomato paste in my freezer and that's perfect for using here, so if you don't already follow that tip, when you open up a can of tomato paste, you'll know what to do with the leftovers!

Here's how to make my homemade chili sauce.
