As far as I’m concerned there is nothing more gratifying than a spicy sauce, even if it’s packed with calories.
Fortunately, this recipe for a sweet chili sauce is low in calories and can be served with almost anything. I can taste its lovely heat with chicken, beef, and pork. We dipped skewers lined with cod, colorful red peppers, and tender zucchini into our bowls of sauce.
Not into meat? How about serving it with stir fried vegetables and brown rice?
According to Island Vittles, you can keep this sauce in the frig for several weeks. Don’t worry about dumping it down the disposal, our jar was gone in a few days. I call that testimony to a good sauce.
Nice job to IslandVittles for providing us with a terrific, low calorie sauce!
