Jalapeno Metchup- Aka Spicy Fry Sauce





Introduction: Jalapeno Metchup- Aka Spicy Fry Sauce

Here's one of my favorite concoctions for "Metchup" (aka Fry Sauce). 

If you've got a "heat" tooth, it might become your favorite, too!

This recipe yields about 3/4 cup. You can double, triple or quadruple it with equal success.

Remember to give it a rest period in the refrigerator before serving. This allows the heat from the jalapenos to mature and blend for some tasty, lip-smackin' Fry Sauce!

  • 1/2 cup Mayonnaise
  • 2 Tablespoons Homemade Ketchup- (Substitute with store-bought ketchup at your own risk. ;-)
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic- (2 cloves) grated or minced
  • 1-3 Tablespoons Pickled Jalapeno peppers- finely diced
  • 1-2 teaspoons Juice from Jalapeno can/jar
  • 1/4 teaspoon Chili Powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon Liquid Smoke- Mesquite
  • 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Seasoning Salt
Finely dice enough pickled Jalapenos until you have at least 1-2 Tablespoons.  Grate the whole garlic cloves until you have 1 teaspoon.

Put all the ingredients in a medium bowl.  Whisk together until combined. Taste and adjust seasoning or add more diced jalapeno as preferred.

Spoon into glass container. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour or overnight if time allows.

Serve as a dunking/dipping sauce  or spread it on your favorite Hamburger.  There are NO RULES when it comes to Metchup. Set your creative soul free and customize it your way!!!

    hey again Bajablue :)

    made yet another batch of this fantastic sauce ( i love it!)
    and i finally got a photo for you

    this batch is made from..

    tomato sauce
    djoin mustard
    chilli paste
    wasabi paste
    all purpose seasoning (which is a mixture of various spices etc)


    Thanks for sharing, AAG! 

    Your latest creation sounds yummy...  and I love wasabi!  

    yes i recently bought a tube of wasabi paste for sushi (which i discovered i do not like) and even though i'm not a chilli fan i love the taste and the "heat" of wasabi

    If you like Teriyaki sauce... you will LOVE this one with wasabi.  It's one of my all-time favorite creations.  The flavor is incredible!

    Pineapple Wasabi Teriyaki Sauce

    i read it and it does sound very tasty!
    i do "food tech" in school and was given the choice of either making sushi or teriyaki chicken..i made the sushi and regretted it
    the flavor of nori is similar to the smell of a bait-shop! ICK

    lol... maybe you should have consulted me first. See? I was reading your teriyaki mind... just a little too late! ;-D

    Oh my... here's a bib for you. ;-)
