"This tastes much better than a chili sauce I previously used. Didn't have tomato juice, used 1/2 cup organic creamy tomato soup with 1/2 cup Pomi tomato sauce, and 1/2 tsp. Himalayan salt (preferred). But aaaccckkk, DH doesn't really care for it."

"This is close enough to my Mom's recipe to give this 5 stars. I haven't had them in a long time since I saw what all is in a hot dog and I miss them something terrible! I grew up on these. I could eat 4 of them. We didn't put cheese on ours but HAD to have onions."
