Bottom line, if you love marinara sauce, I can’t recommend making a homemade batch enough. It is comforting from the start to the delicious finish. And you can rest easy as well knowing exactly what goes into this, versus some of the mystery, unhealthy ingredients on labels at the store.
Thai Sweet Chili Sauce is super simple to make at home. All you have to do is throw all of the ingredients into a blender. Pulse. Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium-high heat until it thickens. Allow cooling and then store in the fridge. Next time you are planning some chicken popcorn or Thai satay, simply bring out the bottle of homemade Thai sweet chili sauce and serve as a dipping sauce.
