Loved the flavor! Not ketchup though. I cooked on low for 3 hours and it still isn't that thick. Will use whenever a recipe calls for chili sauce and on top of meatloaf as well. I also used my immersible blender to smooth it out.

This recipe is fantastic!!! My daughter who puts ketchup on everything loves it. I did use one reviewers suggestion to use the immersion blender to smooth it out. It's great and has become our replacement for good old tomato ketchup.Thanks for sharing!!!

After cooking the sauce down a bit, I used an immersion blender to smooth it out a little. It is absolutely wonderful with turkey burgers.
