"This is 1 of my 2 staple chili sauces. This is a great recipe to keep on hand for those chili cravings. I have used this recipe on hot dogs, brats, fries and hamburgers of all varieties; even over spaghetti. This recipe freezes very well and will last in the freezer up to 6 months as long as it is properly sealed in airtight containers with a piece of plastic wrap inside the container sitting directly on top of the sauce mixture. You can reduce the cooking time by cooking over a higher heat - just make sure to watch the chili closely, stirring often, so it does not burn on the bottom."

"Be very careful about the cinnamon. Depending on the freshness or quality 1 teaspoon may be way too much. I made the mistake and cracked open a fresh bottle and put the full teaspoon when I shouldn't started with a 1/4 and added as needed. I should have known because after about a minute of adding the cinnamon the smell was overpowering. Other then that its a good recipe"
"Perfect ... similar to the recipe I grew up with and lost mine. I did reduce the cinnamon, too sweet for me. But that is just my taste.
This is definitely it!!"
"This is exactly the recipe I've been searching for! A while ago I saw a segment of Man vs Food where the owner of a restaurant was talking about the hot dog chili he makes. The technique he described was this recipe to a T (combining the liquid with the meat and squishing it between your fingers till there are no lumps). However the TV version said he allowed the mixture to simmer all day, just continuing to add more liquid. Honestly though, I do not know how a hot dog chili sauce good be any tastier than this recipe!! I reduced the cinnamon to 1/2 tsp and used real onion in stead of the dried, being the only changes I made to this recipe. We loved this!!! Why purchased canned when you can make better at home?? I served with a little mustard and sweet relish, shredded Mexican blend cheese and chopped onion. As another reviewer stated, This IS "Chili-Dog HEAVEN"!!! Thank you, so much!!"
"This was a great recipe for chili dogs. I made it the night before to let the flavors meld. I did need to thicken it by using cornstarch. It turned out well."
"Chili-dog HEAVEN!! Excellent sauce. I followed the recipe to the letter except I had no dried onions so I finely chopped about 1/3 of a big purple onion. I will remember this great stuff the next time a powerful yen for chili dogs comes calling. This is fabulous and everyone loved it!"
"Not bad. I left out the cinnamon and added a tblsp cumin, 1/4 tsp red pepper flake and an envelope of beefy onion soup mix."
"I love this recipe! This is my first time cooking chili sauce for hotdogs and fries and I definitely recommend this recipe. I definitely substitute the stock to Knorr cubes because its gonna be way too much time to spend. I'm out of time and I also added a 1 cup of water to substitute the liquid. About the cinnamon I only put 1/4 teaspoon and it went good. I uploaded a pic. Love love love this recipe!"
"I scaled it down,but I'll never buy store bought chili again.LOVED it.."
"This is the best chili sauce we have ever had. I made it exactly as written with the exception of the parsley, simply because I didn't have any, but I will use it next time. Also, I use ground round and there is hardly any fat to skim off. Thank you Miss Brandist for this recipe. It is in my family favorites cookbook (Otherwise known as 'The Vault'."
