Kickin' Ketchup


1/2 cup chopped 365 Everyday Value® roasted red peppers, drained well1/2 cup 365 Organic Everyday Value® ground flaxseed, 1/4 cup packed fresh basil leaves,

1/4 cup rolled oats, 2 cloves garlic, 1 teaspoon pimentón (smoked paprika),

2 (15 ounce) cans no-salt-added cannellini beans, rinsed and drained,

1 teaspoon of KICKIN’ KETCHUP®



Place peppers, flaxseed, basil, oats, garlic and smoked paprika in the bowl of a food processor and process until blended. Add beans and pulse briefly until mixture just comes together in a ball, scraping down sides of bowl occasionally. Be careful not to fully puree the beans but rather leave them chunky.The burger mixture may seem loose but these will certainly hold up and keep their shape when cooked on a hot grill. Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Form burger mixture into 6 even patties. Grill burgers, covered, for 3 minutes on each side, or until lightly browned and heated through. Cover both sides of buns with Kickin' Ketchup®. Place lettuce leaves on buns and top with burgers, tomato slices and avocado.

Kickin' Ketchup

Makes 8 sandwiches

​1 (4 pound) Pork Shoulder Roast, Pam® Olive Oil Cooking Spray, 1 1/2 cups KICKIN' KETCHUP®,

1/2 cup chicken broth, 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar,, 1 extra large onion, chopped, 2 large cloves garlic-crushed,
1 1/2 teaspoons dried thyme, 1 Tablespoon of Honey or Liquid Smoke can be added for desired flavor.
8 hamburger buns, split, 2 tablespoons butter, or as needed

Spray your slow cooker with Pam® Olive Oil Spray in and around the lip of the slow cooker pot to avoid sauce from sticking. Place the Kickin’ Ketchup™, apple cider vinegar, chicken broth, garlic, and thyme in a bowl and thoroughly whisk the ingredients together. Add the onions to the mixture and mix together. Place about a third of the sauce into the bottom of the slow cooker and then place the pork shoulder on top of it. Pour the remainder of the sauce on top of the pork shoulder and place the lid on the slow cooker. Cover and cook on High until the roast shreds easily with a fork, 5 to 6 hours. (TIP: The pork can also be cooked on Low for 10 to 12 hours.) Remove the roast from the slow cooker, and shred the meat using two forks. Return the shredded pork to the slow cooker, and stir the meat into the juices. Let it simmer on High with the lid off to thicken while you prepare your side dishes. Can simmer this way up to an hour if necessary. Spread the inside of the hamburger buns with butter. Toast the buns under the oven broiler until golden brown. Remove the Pork with a slotted spoon into the toasted buns.  *A Pulled Pork sandwich can be paired with Cole Slaw for a cool summer meal or Baked Beans for warm, comfort food (try our Kickin’ Ketchup® Baked Bean recipe)

Kickin' Ketchup


2 pounds sweet potatoes, about 3 large ones

1/4 cup olive or other vegetable oil (To cut fat content you can use half oil and spray the pan with non-stick spray)

1-2 Tbsp brown sugar

1 Tbsp rosemary sea salt

1-2 Tbsp spice combination: chipotle powder, smoked paprika,  pumpkin pie spice.



1. Preheat oven to 450°F. (500°F for more crispiness. Preheating the baking sheet also adds crispness).

2. Peel the sweet potatoes and cut off the ends. Cut the potatoes in half lengthwise and then in half crosswise. Quarter pieces into wedges or continue to slice for think fries.

3. Put the sweet potatoes into a large bowl and add the oil. Mix well to combine. Sprinkle with rosemary sea salt, brown sugar and spices of your choice. Use your hands to mix well, so all pieces are coated with oil and spices.

4. Spread the sweet potatoes out in a single layer on a baking sheet.  Preheating the baking sheet also helps the fries get crisp.

5. Bake for a total of 25 to 30 minutes. After the first 15 minutes, remove the baking sheet from the oven and turn over all of the sweet potato pieces. (You can put them on a wire cooling rack on top of a baking sheet, so that the oven air circulates around the sweet potato pieces). Return to the oven and bake for another 10-15 minutes, or until they are well browned. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving.

6. Serve with KICKIN' KETCHUP® until devoured!
