Sauce For Quick Chilli

Asked by bkjurisdr. Answered on 2nd June 2018

Full question

In Nigella Express, the recipe for Quick Chilli calls for "sweet chili sauce." Is this the sweet chili sauce used in Asian recipes, such as Thai food?

Our answer

Nigella's Quick Chilli (from NIGELLA EXPRESS) is a quick and delicious combination of chorizo sausage, minced (ground) beef and mixed beans. As it is an Express recipe the sauce is made from a good quality store-bought tomato and vegetable sauce plus added spices. Sweet chilli sauce is also used to give the dish an extra kick.

The sauce listed in the ingredients is the Thai sweet chilli sauce which is often used as a dipping sauce. It can be found in most major supermarkets as well as Asian food stores. Although the chilli sauce is slightly sweet it works well in the chilli as it gives the dish a good balance of sweet and salty.
