How to Make Chipotle Ketchup

Q: What would be the equivilant in Australia of Chipotle Ketchup?

A: I am not sure what the equivelent would be.. I have found a recipe online for making your own chipotle ketchup but that is assuming you can get the needed ingredients which sounds like it could be a problem. I will tell you that chipotle is basically red Jalapeno peppers that have been smoked for several days over fairly low heat. I have also included a link to making your own chipotle.

And here is the recipe for Chipotle Ketchup which I found at


* 1 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
* 3/4 cup ketchup
* 1 1/2 teaspoon chopped canned chipotle chilies
* 1 tablespoon spicy tomato sauce from chipotle can
* 1 1/2 tablespoon fresh lime juice
* 1 tablespoon tequila


Stir cumin seeds in heavy small saucepan over medium heat until fragrant and seeds darken, about 1 minute.

Transfer to plate and cool. Grind seeds in spice grinder or with mortar and pestle.

Return cumin to same saucepan. Whisk in ketchup, chipotle chilies, spicy tomato sauce, lime juice and tequila.

Simmer over medium-low heat until ketchup thickens slightly, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes.

Serve warm or at room temp. Can be made one week ahead of time. Cover and chill.

This recipe for Chipotle Ketchup serves/makes 1 cup.

You may have to get a little creative but you can problably duplicate the taste of the ketchup above by looking at the ingredients and just adding what you can find and perhaps making your own chipotle chilis.
