This is a low calorie, mildly spicy, ketchup vegan recipe that avoids all the sugar, corn syrup, and other additives of commercial ketchups.  By omitting the Soy Sauce or Bragg Aminos, you can also make a low sodium ketchup. It can be stored in the refrigerator for over a week in tightly sealed bottle or other container.

Place the water, vinegar, and soy sauce or Bragg Aminos in the container of a high speed blender.

Add the pasilla chili peppers (with stems removed), and the remaining ingredients. (Note: we suggest adding only 1/8 tsp. of stevia extract until you taste the finished ketchup; then if you want more sweetness, add another 1/8 tsp.)

Cover the container and run the blender at high speed until the ingredients are creamy smooth.  Taste it, and if you want it sweeter, add another 1/8 tsp. of stevia extract, cover, and run the blender at high speed for another 10 seconds.

Pour into a serving container or bottle.

Enjoy! It great on a baked potato or as a sandwich spread.
