"A ketchup-based dip that is sweet and spicy with plenty of zing that is best served with sweet potato French fries. The longer you let this sit, the better. My friends and family can't get enough of this stuff!"

This tastes almost like the sauce that I mix up for shrimp cocktails, but this has brown sugar and my cocktail sauce has fresh lemon juice. Word of caution...you may want to start with half the amount of cayenne, and then add more if you feel it's necessary. That's a real blast of cayenne (1-1/2 tsp), and it may be too spicy. I started with half the amount indicated in the recipe, it had plenty of kick for us, and we typically like spicy food.
I wanted to love this but I couldn't because it seemed like nothing more than a spicy cocktail sauce. I thought the brown sugar would lend something and I would be surprised with but I wasn't. It doesn't taste bad but its like a shrimp cocktail. Sorry
Love it...Awesome in and on top of meatloaf...yum!
Why is cocktail sauce a spicy dip for sweet potato fries? I could not get past thinking I should be eating fish!? Not bad as a fish sauce but it totally ruined my fries.
The guys loved this, though, hubby's first words after trying it were, "Hey, this tastes like the stuff that you eat w/ fish", lol! I thought the flavors were really good, and I'd eat it w/ fries OR fish! Thanks for sharing. :)
