Homemade Chili Sauce

Andy Anderson !


Chili sauce is a staple in many of my recipes, and at this time of the year, it’s part of an appetizer that I use at Thanksgiving, and when we have our open house days during the holidays.

I am a fan of Heinz Chili Sauce; however, I like to make my own homemade version.

So, let’s make some chili sauce
