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

How to Make Homemade Chili Sauce

Step-by-Step

  1. Add all the ingredients to a saucepan and bring to a very light simmer.
  2. Simmer, uncovered, for 20 minutes.
  3. Add the content of the saucepan to a blender, fitted with an S-blade, and then blend until completely smooth.
  4. Place the sauce in a bowl, cover, and refrigerate for several hours, or overnight before using.
  5. Chef’s Note: Many people use chili sauce in place of ketchup, and it is excellent on a good juicy burger, or hotdog.
  6. Chef's Note: The appitizer recipe I use this in is my mini meatballs in a grape/chili sauce recipe.

    The incorporation of this homemade sauce, and using my meatball recipe, makes for a wonderful treat for your guests.
  7. Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
