It's either tomato ketchup or chili sauce (both are red - one is red hot!).
1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup white vinegar
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Whisk until smooth. When mixture comes to a boil, reduce heat and slimmer for 20 minutes, stirring often. Remove pan from heat and cover until cool.
Chill and store in a covered container.

Home-Style Inner Beauty Hot Sauce
WARNING: Hottest sauce around. Use this to enhance dull and boring food. Keep away from pets, open flames, unsupervised children, and bad advice. This is not a toy. This is serious. Stand up straight, sit right, tuck your shirt in and stop mumbling.
Be careful not to rub your nose, eyes, or mouth or any other sensitive parts while working with habaneros. You may actually want to pretend you're a surgeon and wear rubber gloves while chopping and mixing - these babies are powerful.
This style of hot sauce, widely used in the West Indies, is basically habanero peppers (also known as Scotch Bonnets), fruit, and yellow mustard, with a few other ingredients thrown in. Use this recipe as a guideline. Habaneros are at the top of the chilli pepper heat scale, so feel free to substitute other peppers of your choice.
* 15 habanero chillis - roughly chopped
* 1 ripe mango - peel, pit, mash
* 1 cup cheap yellow prepared mustard
* 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
* 1/4 cup white vinegar
* 1 tablespoon curry powder
* 1 tablespoon ground cumin
* 1 tablespoon chilli powder
* salt and pepper to taste, assuming surviving taste buds
Mix all the ingredients together and stand well back.
Funnel the sauce into an old pint liquor bottle, then let your imagination run free as to what whopper you can lay on your guests regarding its origins. If you're having trouble, here's a start: "One day in Jamaica I was in this dingy bar and met this old guy who..." and you take it from there.
This will keep, covered and refrigerated, until the year 2028. Be careful though: If it spills, it will eat a hole in your refrigerator. If you ever want to dispose of it, call the local toxic waste specialists.
