This recipe is a classic simply because it's so delicious. And when it's made in your crockpot, it's even easier. And using your crockpot means all you have to do is stir occasionally - if you have any left to stir! I myself think cocktail sauce is delicious with the jelly; it's basically just like chili sauce but a bit spicier. Any jelly or jam and any spicy tomato-based sauce will work well.
