Fire Roasted Ketchup

I’ve been loving making random condiments this past year. I’m so glad I found these jewel jars to hold all of them. Hubby’s favorite of the past year is definitely this fire roasted ketchup. I found the recipe from Rachel Ray when I was looking for a sliders recipe. I didn’t end up using her sliders but this ketchup intrigued me enough to try it. Good thing I did!


This condiment provides a great firey flavor that compliments grilled food perfectly. One thing Hubby and I really miss about living in the Midwest is our grill. Our place in Boston is very small and we don’t have any room to have a grill anywhere. We miss the ease of being able to just throw something on the grill for a quick meal.


The best thing about this recipe is that it’s SO simple to mix up. AND, it makes two jars of ketchup. So you can keep one yourself and give one to a friend. I promise they’ll love you for it!


And yes, I do pile that much ketchup on my burgers because this stuff is seriously awesome!

    I loooove this stuff. I’ve always called it Muddy Buddy, though.

    I made this as treats to the humans from our 2 dogs. My mom fell in love with it and went out right away and bought the ingredients. Merry Christmas.

    Everyone always raves about this stuff but I confess: I’ve never had it! I was allergic to peanuts during childhood 🙁
    But it looks so good that I think I need to give it a try now!

    This stuff is sooo good. I’ve never made it myself, but have had it several times. Perhaps I’ll make it sometime soon.

    One of my college roommates made this for us, and I’ve been in love with them since! We usually use Crispix, though, which is rice and corn. =)

    We love that stuff too! We make it for our friends all the time and they can’t stop eating it.

    Like Joy said, we use Crispix too.

    Why is this called Puppy Chow mix? At first I thought it was for dogs and was alarmed by the chocolate chips in the ingredients…

    No idea why it’s called Puppy Chow… That’s just what we always called it…
