    AmyZoe's Note:

    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!

      I made this yesterday but only got 2 large jars but boy, were they ever good! I wanted to experiment this year so I just decided that I would try a few chili sause recipes before I make a big batch. Ok...that was the plan but plans change. This will be my big batch recipe ! I have to admit the I only added 1/2 of the cayenne but it still had a nice little kick to it. Thanks so much for a great keeper !

      Bottom line...this is one awesome chili sauce. So incredibly easy to make in no time at all, and the aroma is enough to knock your socks off. I let DH make it because he was bugging the heck out of me. He followed the recipe to the letter and found it a tad sweet for our taste, but not by much. Also, with the 2 teaspoons of cayenne pepper, it does have quite a kick. Next time we'll only use one. This is definitely a keeper. Made for New Kids on the Block Tag. Thanks for posting/sharing your recipe, AmyZoe.
