I love sweet red Thai chile sauce, so when I needed a dip for my Bisquick sausage balls, I whipped up this Creamy Sweet Chili Sauce to try it out. This is an awesome sauce for those of you that love sweet chili sauce, the mayo and the sour cream temper the heat slightly, but you can add as much or as little red chile sauce as you want! I would love to try this on French fries next, I think this is going to be one of those sauces that you can put on everything!
You can also make this into a great lower calorie, lower fat dip if you want, simply use a low or no fat sour cream and mayonnaise. The taste won’t be exactly the same as what I taste-tested with this version of the dip, but it will be close and it will still be delicious!
Who else loves a good sweet chile sauce? I also like it as-is on shrimp, simply stir fry them up with some sweet chile sauce…ah, perfection! But speaking of shrimp, it just occurred to me that this dip would be fantastic with battered shrimp as an appetizer as well! Mmm. Now I want shrimp.
Have a great weekend everyone!

Great idea for a sauce! Sounds perfect for the sausage balls. I’m trying tonight!

If you’re looking to make some chili dogs in a hurry, it’s not going to hurt to take a can of chicken broth and add some tomato paste to the pan. This is a much easier recipe to follow and gives you some added flavor.

Has anyone tried making these and freezing them PRIOR to baking…then bake the day you need them? Thanks!

I make them all of the time, form into balls and place them on a tray in the freezer until frozen and the place in a freezer bag. I take out what i need to cook.
We only had about 1/4 cup sour cream so just used more mayo. O.M.G. Delicious! Will be even better withe right amount of sour cream. Fantastic with your sausage cheeseballs!
I want to try this but I’m not sure where you get some heat. Sweet chili sauce has no heat. Am I missing something?
Hey Nick, the sweet chili sauce has red chili peppers in it and it definitely has heat just make sure to pick up the right one!

Try this sauce on a baked potato! Illegal, immoral, and fattening! allergic to Thai peppers? Me too, try Loperamide Hydrochloride and an adult diaper and just walk it off!
🙂 I laughed out loud (seriously) at Trader Mac’s comment. (Thank you for the smile 🙂 🙂
I’m allergic to Thai peppers. What else can I use?
