|Hot Dogs with chili sauce|
If you are a fan of a good old fashioned hot dog with chili, then this recipe is just what you need. I grew up in a small Western Pennsylvania town, where hot dogs are a staple.
There were several hot dog shops around town, each specializing in their own chili sauce. We moved away from our hometown, and it turns out that hot dogs with chili is one of the foods we miss the most. Now we have a recipe to make our own that reminds us of home.
There are so many garnishes for hot dogs, but I like mine with mustard, onion and chili. Sometimes I add a nice thin slice of dill pickle on top, and it's oh so good.
