This is a spicy sauce I created. Not for the little ones or faint of heart.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

What an easy to make, flavorful hot dog sauce. The balance of flavors is spot on and similar to a Tex-Mex chili. It's savory with a kick. We did use the 7 tsp of chili powder and it was perfect for our palate. If you don't like things hot, just cut back on the chili powder. The chili and cumin mingle together perfectly. Once simmered, the meat has a smooth texture. A delicious topping for your hot dog.

Note: We cooked ours on the stovetop low and covered. We stirred often and had to add a little water about halfway through the cooking process. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
