I miss condiments. A lot of the Paleo food that I am eating would be great with condiments! But unfortunately, those condiments would not be great for my Paleo diet. So I decided to make one that was. I knew that not just any condiment would do– it couldn’t be just ok or vaguely resemble a condiment.

It had to be something great, something that could make me forget about the Ketchup or BBQ sauce that I used to know. And this something is Paleo Sweet and Spicy Dipping Sauce.

This sauce is sooo good! On par with what I have had at restaurants.

Its not too spicy, not too sweet–and has the perfect texture– its thick enough to stay on what you are eating post-dunk.

Finally a normal textured, normal tasting Paleo condiment!

I no longer eat my paleo chicken fingers while secretly wishing that I could dunk them in ketchup because I have something better to dunk them into.

Yuuum!

It really completes many a meal that requires a dipping sauce.  I love it with eggplant, pulled pork or sweet potato fries.

It really is delicious with so many foods! So what are you waiting for??
