*Chip Chopped ham is an inexpensive, shaved processed ham loaf found in many supermarket deli's.
Rinse ham in a colander briefly to remove excess salt.
Put rinsed ham in a large sauce pot or crock pot on low heat.
In a separate bowl, mix onion, Heinz Chili sauce, mustard, brown sugar, A1 or Worcestershire, relish, and Jalapenos if using along with water.
Add to ham and heat slowly, allowing sauce to become thick and sticky on ham (1-2 hours).
Serve on toasted buns with cheese and or cole slaw.
