This is excellent coney sauce. I used a little bit less sugar the second time I made it and suggest you add about half, then taste before adding it all. Top the dogs with this, cheese, diced onion and Dijon for an awesome treat!

I just finished this recipe for my husband who likes chili sauce on hot dogs. As a rule, I do not. However, this stuff is delicious! I will confess that I added a bit more chili powder, some cumin, and a pinch of baking soda to counter the acid of the tomatoes. My hot dog was the best ever. The idea of boiling the meat is wonderful. I think I will try that technique when I make spaghetti sauce next time.

This reminds me of the sauce from a restaurant where I grow up. It's the closest replica that I've ever found. I'm making it again right now. Love it love it love it love it love it love it love it love it

Very easy and delicious. My daughter,who was helping me cook, accidentally added Mesquite flavored beans to it and it came out great.

This tasted great, I added some green pepper because I had some fresh from my garden. I placed a heaping amount of brown sugar and added 30 ounces of sauce, that was two whole cans of Red Gold tomato sauce. I let mine simmer longer so it would be hot for our cookout. Big hit!
