Didn't even realize that our Billy Boy had this recipe on the site. Hubster is a burger and topping snob, but because I knew he would love this, I gave it a shot. He did Bill!! We also ended up mixing in horseradish which made a terrific cocktail sauce for both shrimp and our favorite Vermont cheddar cheese. Thanks honey pie!

This is a great start. If you are like me and like to experiment with healthier alternatives, then this gives you a little push. I have been making my own Ketchup and Mustard sauces for years. I use base 'tomato sauce' and then add splenda for sweet, garlic seasonings, cider vinegar, onion salt etc. as my tastes warrant. Same thing with Mustard, just add the flavors you like, cayenne, garlic, black pepper. The options are endless. I love a sweeter mustard so I have been putting a little splenda in with garlic and man is it good on veggies or on the wraps I make with turkey and coleslaw.

I tried this out last week, and liked it so much I made it with a 24oz bottle of ketchup. I added quite a lot more garlic pwder, and also some dried minced onion. I'm going to make up a smaller bottle for Husband with some spicy yellow mustard. Thanks!

Try to find a ketchup without the high fructose corn syrup. Hunt's has one. I don't think Heinz has caught up with reality yet. If you use the green Tabasco sauce, it comes pretty close to the Heinz Hot and Spicy.

Awesome, Tasty and Fun; you truly can take this recipe and run with it and make whatever kind of seasoned ketchup that you want - thanks !

I just added the spices to a nearly full bottle of ketchup and SHOOK well. No wastage or clean up. It worked for me. Used a skewer to mix in the seasonings a little at a time.

This is very good! My bottle of ketchup (Heinz) was only 20 oz so I used 2 tsp cayenne, 2 tsp onion powder, 1 1/2 tsp garlic powder, and 1 1/2 tsp chili powder. I used the full amount of hot pepper sauce (Tapatio). So far I've only had this on chicken burgers, but I'm sure it'd be yummy with just about anything. It's a nice change from plain ketchup! My boyfriend loves it, too.

Husband LOVES this stuff... "Heinz Plus"...on eggs, burgers, hot dogs, meat loaf, he even puts it on tuna (yes, he does.) Great idea!
