This recipe makes a wonderful chili sauce for hot dogs. Just place a grilled hot dog in a bun and top with chili, grated Cheddar cheese, and diced onions. Serve immediately. If halving this recipe, cover the pot for half of the two hour simmer.

This was pretty good but I had to up the amount of chili powder quite a bit. (About 1 more Tablespoon) Mind you chili powders are not all created equally. I think some finely chopped onion & garlic in the sauce instead of the powder would have added that little something that this recipe seemed to lack. Thanks for the recipe, No Baking Papa was a happy camper. Read More

This worked perfectly for meatballs! I added the requisite grape jelly to this recipe when I didn't have any prepared chili sauce. Read More

I noticed that a lot of people followed this recipe without changes so that's what I did. I cut it in half because I'm cooking for two, otherwise I didn't deviate from the original recipe. My husband says it was Excellent! I will be making this recipe for now on. Read More

This is the best hot dog chili sauce that I have tasted. I made the full recipe. I spooned it into ice cube trays and froze them. I can take as many chili cubes out that I need. I will never buy the caned chili sauce from the store again. Thank you JRich for the recipe. Read More
