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.
