"If you like a little heat in your barbecue sauce, you'll enjoy this recipe. I used only 1 teaspoon of chili powder when I made it and skipped the straining step. This would be good on beef, chicken, or pork."

"This sounds great because there is no extra sugar added and I use Heinz Reduced Sugar Ketchup."
