Does anyone have a recipe to make your own chili sauce? Trying to cut back on salt and processed foods, but I use chili sauce in quite a few of our favorite recipes.

Thanks!

Here's one that sounds like what you want. I got it here but I can't remember who posted it.

Hot dog Chili (Sauce)

It is like a coney sauce but with meat and better in our opinions. I think coney sauce doesn't have meat at least here in my parts that is the way it is. We have hot dog drive-ins that are only open in the summer time that serve spanish hot dogs and root beer in frosted mugs right at your car. They put the food on a tray hooked onto your car window like back in the 50's did.

2 lbs. Ground beef
2/3 c. Water
1/4 c. Chopped onions
4 1/2 t. Chili powder
1 t. Salt
2 c. Ketchup (or Catsup however your parts say it )--24 oz.
2 t. White vinegar


Mix ground beef (
DO NOT BROWN) with water. Stir in remaining ingredients and simmer for 1 hour. Remember do not brown ground beef first! Serve on hot dogs or on a bun like sloppy Joe's.

» Easy Chili Sauce Recipe
6 fresh tomatoes, diced
2 medium onions, chopped
4 whole jalapeño peppers, chopped
3/4 cup vinegar
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoons red chili flakes
Method:
  • Simply throw everything into a stockpot or heavy skillet and bring it to the boil whilst stirring. Boil for around 15-20 minutes.
  • Allow the mixture to cool then process it in a blender. Return to the heat and gently simmer for another 30 minutes or until it reaches the desired consistency.

There is a consumer product called chili sauce that is like cocktail sauce or ketchup. It is tomato based and probably has a lot of sodium. I have never used it and wonder why it would be needed for any recipe except maybe a coating for a baked meatloaf (where other better choices could be easily substituted).

Thanks, everyone! Jasper, this is very likely what I'm looking for. In case you don't know what chili sauce it is, it's tasty. A little spicy, tomato-based, vinegar, little sweet, etc. Heinz and whatever grocery store make it. We use it in our wing sauce that I incorporate in a bunch of recipes. Once summer comes, I will have fresh tomatoes and will try the recipe. Thanks again!

My Grandma canned it fresh every year! Yummy! She always added a little bit of Allspice, which gave it extra flavor.

If you've never tried it, and have no idea what it tastes like, or why one would want to use it, why bother?
Its not like ketchup or cocktail sauce.
Jasper, thanks for posting the recipe, I'm going to make it this weekend!

Sounds like hot tomato sauce! Bet some Cumin would be good in it!
