Party Salsa

Our favorite dip for crackers and chips is Party Salsa.  You make it with a specific brand of chili sauce called Homade Chili Sauce (that's how it's spelled.)  It looks like this:
This is a delicious chili sauce that you can use for lots of things.  There are no other brands that can compare.  It has to be this one.  If your local grocery store doesn't have it, you can get it on   Try this recipe for a delicious dip for tortilla chips, corn chips or crackers (I love it on Ritz.)  It's a New Year's Eve Tradition!

Party Salsa
1 bottle (round) homade chili sauce
1 bottle chunky salsa (Ortega garden-style is good or Tostitos brand)
Cilantro, chopped (amount to taste.  I do a good handful)
2 cups grated cheddar cheese
1 bunch green onions, chopped
Mix together and put in fridge for a while. You can add chopped avacados but they won't keep.  The salsa will last several days in the fridge.

I remember one year I couldn't find this brand anywhere.  I went store to store and all were sold out.  So I bought another brand of chili sauce and made this dip.  It was terrible and I ended up throwing it out.  It has to be this brand.  This sauce is so good on roast beef and meatloaf.  I also love to throw a jar into anything that calls for canned tomatoes: stew, chili, etc.
