Excellent recipe! I had doubts whilst putting the cooked sasuage into the food processor... it came out a grey mush, but once in with the rest of the ingredients it made the mix less chunky and smoother. I did add 4 cloves of garlic and didn't have the Dales Steak seasoning so used the substitution suggested in step 2 of the recipe, and used my home made chicken (salt free) stock from the freezer and DH Loved this ! We served this with rice and whilst one helping was fine for me, chili lover DH went back for a BIG plate of seconds and has asked first dibs on the leftovers for his lunch tomorrow. Actually we have enough left over for more meals as well,(eaten as a main dish and not over hot dogs) so into the freezer it goes! Yes this could be made very spicy, but in the end you could easily tweek the heat and make it as mild or as hot as you like. Don't let the long list of ingredients put you off, this is a yummy chili sauce. Please see my rating system: 5 excellent stars for a sauce that DH particularly loved, and he's particular about his meat sauces :) The one and only change I might make in the future is to do the initial browning of the meat etc and then just put everything into the crockpot to simmer all day long for a delicious and easy weekday meal. Thanks!
