“Pamela R. says this is an old family recipe passed down from her southern grandmother. It is a traditional old south condiment served with all kinds of meat (especially great on top of meatloaf). A good homemade chili sauce has chunks of tomatoes and a rich burgundy color.This is a medium spice level, but you can add more or leave out entirely. Traditionally it's used with fresh tomatoes, but the recipe was converted to use canned tomatoes years ago. You can store this in the refrigerator for several weeks. I found this very quick and easy to make and the flavors are outstanding. Serving size is estimated. YUM!”
