Tonna's hot dog sauce recipe is a little different than other sauces we've tried. It's very flavorful - spicy and sweet with a slight tang. Toss the stuff in the can and give this a try for your next cookout. It's fairly easy to make and tastes so much better. In a little over an hour, you'll have knock your socks off chili dogs.
