DIY sauces are the best kind of sauce!
A good friend of mine sent me a text that said, “here, have your fun because I know you’ve been waiting on this”, with a link to the greatest BuzzFeed article I’ve ever read. 24 Delicious DIY Sauces You’ll Want to Put on Everything was basically made just for me. Almost once a week I try to make a new sauce, even if I don’t cook with it, I’m bottling it up and saving it for later.
This week’s recipe features an easy sweet chili sauce that I had NO idea contained ingredients I’ve already had in my home. You all know I’m about quick and easy recipes that don’t require much prep work or time so I had to share this with you all. Check out the Skinny Bang Bang Shrimp recipe that shouldn’t be confused with the Cheesecake Factory Bang Bang Chicken and Shrimp recipe I put up a couple weeks ago. These two are completely different recipes. Enjoy and tell us how you liked it!
