Richard Landau doctors store-bought ketchup with sautéed vegetables (sofrito) and Cajun spices. It's great on a veggie burger.

1/2 cup minced green bell pepper
1/2 cup minced onion
1 cup diced plum tomatoes
2 teaspoons Cajun spice blend
1 cup ketchup
- In a skillet, heat the oil until shimmering. Add the green pepper and onion and cook over moderately high heat, stirring, until lightly browned, 3 minutes.
