Sweet Chili Sauce

The dressing for the Sesame Peanut Noodle Salad I made recently called for sweet chili sauce.  I didn't have any sweet chili sauce and wasn't sure I wanted to buy a whole jar of it.  So, I went looking for a recipe to make some myself.  I found a recipe on food.com - which I cannot find now.  I removed the link from my Sesame Peanut Noodles recipe, because I was going to post the chili sauce recipe separately.  And then I forgot to actually start this post and save the link here.

I have searched food.com repeatedly, and there are lots of sweet chili sauce recipes, but I just can't find this one.

Sweet Chili Sauce
adapted from a recipe on food.com

  • 1 8-oz. can tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 T cider vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp. red chili flakes
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • dash cloves
  • dash allspice
  • dash salt
  1. In small saucepan, mix all ingredients.
  2. Simmer over low heat until thickened.
  3. Store in glass jar in refrigerator.

The original recipe did not call for any chili flakes - which seemed weird since it's called sweet chili sauce - so I added some.  Since I've never actually had sweet chili sauce, I'm not sure if this tastes like the kind you'd buy in the store or not, but it is a nice flavorful sauce, and it worked really well in my noodle salad - both times I made it. (so far)

Now, what else can I use this sauce for?  Because, even though I did not buy a whole jar just to make the Sesame Peanut Noodles, I do have quite a bit of yummy sauce. 

I recently saw an ad for Papa Murphy's Thai Chicken Pizza that I'm going to try making real soon - even though I haven't tried the 'real' thing yet.  I'm not sure what else.  Any ideas?
