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
