  1. I can't help you with the whole bottle, but sweet chili sauce and sour cream is awesome on fries.

      sounds interesting, unfortunately I never make fries at home. However, I do make potatoes often (like home fries or grilled), might try with them!

        My goodness, start making them!! They're so good! :-P

    2. I'm not sure if it's the right sweet chili sauce, but I like stir-fried shrimp and fried tofu, scallions, garlic, and then the sweet chili sauce goes in afterward. More on the vinegary side, so there may be some adjustment needed with the vinegar!

      1. Tofu recipe
        -reg to firm tofu cut into large slabs,
        -flour, dip in egg and crust with panko
        -shallow fry on all sides then drain on paper towel and wipe out the pan.
        -in hot pan, mix equal parts sweet chili sauce and chili soy sauce (or use reg soy sauce and minced chili)
        -pour over tofu and seve

        1. It will be good as a ham glaze, studded with cloves.

          1. If it's the asian kind:

            use it in salad dressing
            glaze for grilled chicken, salmon, pork
            chicken wing sauce

            Buy a tub of cream cheese. Put in in a bowl. Smash down the middle into a round hollow. Fill with chili sauce. Serve with rice cracker

              Seconding the use of sweet chili as a glaze with chicken. It is also very good if you use 3 parts of your favorite BBQ sauce with 1 part of sweet chili sauce - with ribs, it's awesome.

                I been using the 'for chicken' version for years; sometimes as dip for chicken, more often just as a way of adding a sweet and slightly hot touch to a dish. It keeps well on the condiment shelf, so there is no rush in using a bottle.
