Fast Food Sauces (Version 2)


Colombians love fast food and one of the main reasons is because they love putting all kinds of sauces on top of their burgers or hot dogs. A few years ago I posted a few recipes for some of the most famous sauces used in Colombia, but since the list of all those different kinds of sauces is pretty much endless, I decided to post a few more this year.


The first sauce is a very basic one that is usually served with salted potatoes and it's incredibly delicious. The BBQ ketchup is a twist on regular ketchup that I usually serve whenever I make anything made with BBQ sauce. And the last sauce was a complete mystery to me because I had never heard of it until I posted the recipe to make tartar sauce.



Once I posted that recipe, people started asking me if I knew how to make sweet tartar sauce with pineapple. I was totally confused because I had never seen a sweet tartar sauce. Then, during my trip to Colombia last year, I spotted it at one of the many fast food stands I came across and asked how it was made. Turns out it's a pineapple flavored mayonnaise with carrots and cilantro that for some odd reason is called "tartar sauce" in Colombia.

¡Buen Provecho!
