Texas Hot Sauce a.k.a. Chili Dog Sauce

Jennifer Barley


I got this recipe from my grandmother who used to own a diner and was famous for her texas hots. I think she would be very proud if people decided to make her recipe and try it out.

I would also like to point out that this picture doesn't display the actual sauce,it's a borrowed pic, but I PROMISE next time I make this recipe I will take a picture of the actual sauce
