Good stuff! Makes a lot so ya need a lot of dogs to top. Or this would freeze just great. Or add to a pot of beans. I used Chipotles in Adobo BBQ Sauce for the barbecue sauce and tomato sauce. Thanks.

This is awesome! I followed the instructions exactly except I used about 1/4 cup of water and it was a perfect consistency for us. Great recipe, Marie Nixon, thanks so much for sharing it!!!!

This was absolutely excellent! I, also, left the water out. My husband and I eat "low carb" so I put this on top of beef hot links and topped with onions and grated cheddar...delicious!!!
