Question Language conversion USA to OZ - Chili Sauce

I've been here forty years and it seems I still have a language problem. For a 50-odd years old USA recipe I need what Americans call chili sauce. It is not a hot sauce. Perhaps a piquant sauce defines it better. It is tomato based sauce I think or a straight catsup or tomatoe sauce dressed up. Thank you to anyone who can help unconfuse me.

It's a seasoned ketchup type sauce. It's sold side by side with the ketchup and made by the same companies.

Andy M. is right - here are a couple of recipes:

1 peck tomatoes
9 green peppers
6 med. size onions
3 c. sugar
3/4 c. salt
1 doz. med. red peppers
1 qt. vinegar
3 tsp. cloves, ground
3 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. nutmeg
2 tsp. ginger

or

20 lg. tomatoes (about 9 1/2 lbs.)
6 lg. onions, chopped
3 or 4 green peppers, chopped
1 or 2 sm. peppers, unseeded
4 1/2 c. sugar
4 c. vinegar (5% acidity)
1 tbsp. ground cinnamon
2 tsp. ground ginger
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
1/2 tsp. ground allspice

For both you just chop everything up and toss it in a pot, bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer for 3-4 hours until thick like ketchup, or tomato sauce as you call it down there.

Thanks guys, but I think I'd better stick with Andy's advice. I only want to make a double recipe at this time. The other two recipes have quanties that would have me renting storage space for it all. If I can find a suitable item somewhere around the catsup shelf here in Australia I'll go that route

LOL - I was just giving you the recipes so you could see what goes into chili sauce - and how it differs from tomato sauce/ketchup. Yep, I just buy a bottle off the grocery store shelves when I need some, too.
