1/2 cup Heavy Ceam

  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and tomato paste and cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are softened, about 3 minutes.

  2. Add sweet chili rub, stirring constantly, until fragrant, about 30 seconds

  3. Stir in tomatoes and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Add vodka and simmer briskly on medium-high heat until alcohol flavor is cooked off, 8 to 10 minutes; stir occasionally.

  4. Stir in cream and cook until hot, about 1 minute.
