Substitute for garlic chile sauce

jan_holly | Feb 9, 202005:59 PM     3

I want to fix some wings but I don't want the usual hot wings or bbq wings. I found an Asian marinade recipe that calls for garlic chile sauce which don't have. The recipe only calls for 1/4 cup of the garlic chile sauce. I don't eat a lot of Asian food so I am afraid that I would never use the rest of it if I made some or bought it. I eat a lot of Mexican food and Cajun food. So I was wondering if something like ketchup with garlic and some chiptople in adobo and maybe a little vinegar added to it would be a decent substitute for the garlic chile sauce?? Part of the marinade is reduced and slathered on the baked wings before they go under the broiler for a few minutes and become sticky wings. I also have some dried ancho peppers and dried guajillo peppers on hand if they make a better substitute. I would appreciate any thoughts that y'all might have.
