I made this yesterday, and I thought it was great! I made a few changes based on taste, and because I'm planning on using this to make chili mac later in the week. I added a few chopped tomatoes, and some green pepper, kidney beans, and added some more seasonings. After tasting I still thought it needed something, so I added about 1/2 ts of beef base, and that did the trick! I love how quick this came together, and I bet it will be wonderful in chili mac! Thanks for posting!

Coney Island chili sauce for hot dogs like Nathan's etc is not GB Tomoto sauce onion garlic and certainly NOT Chili sauce! this is plain false recipes and yes I'd fully expect that frm Jackson MI - no offense.
