Hot & Spicy Cocktail Sauce
This sauce, good with seafood, grilled meat, and poultry, gets its heat from a smoky chipotle pepper and a healthy amount of cayenne. Chipotle peppers packed in adobo can be found in Mexican markets and many supermarkets. If you can't find them, substitute a pickled jalapeño, and increase the chili powder to 2-1/2 teaspoons.
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 chipotle pepper packed in adobo, minced

In a medium bowl, whisk together the ketchup, lime juice, chili powder, coriander, and cayenne. Stir in the chipotle pepper.
