Top Review by keen5

I followed the recipe exactly as written and took this to a Memorial Day cookout at my sister's house. It didn't really go over that well with many people. I ended up bringing most of it home. I'm giving it three stars, because I thought it was pretty good and so did a couple of others, plus it was very quick and easy to make. I liked the combination of the sugar and cumin, but I like chili dog sauce that is saucy. This is not and just looks like ground beef in a bowl, when served. I had to tell everyone what it was for. I would probably make this again, but not for an outing. Thanks for the recipe Busy Mom.
