Homemade Chili Sauce & Party Salsa

1 8 oz can tomato sauce
2 TBSP brown sugar
2 TBSP vinegar
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp dry mustard
3 dashes Worcestershire Sauce

Whisk all ingredients together in a bowl until well combined.

I have a hard time finding this chili sauce in stores, so I found a couple of recipes on pinterest and combined the parts that I liked to make this one. It was perfect! I use it to make Party Salsa, a sweet salsa my mom made when we were growing up.

Party Salsa
1 recipe chili sauce
1 1/2 cups of your favorite chunky salsa (I like Medium because the chili sauce is sweet.2)
half a bunch of chopped cilantro
4-5 chopped green onions
1 cup grated medium cheddar cheese

Mix all ingredients except the cheese. I don't like how the cheese gets mushy, so I just sprinkle in a little cheese in the bowl of salsa I will eat for that snack or meal right then.

This is a salsa I love to make with our New Year's Eve dinner. Love how fresh tasting and sweet it is.
