    Where in CA were you from? I've lived in NO CA all my life and I've never heard of Cupid's. Is it a restaurant, or hot dog stand, or brand of hot dog or sauce? Were you north, Red Bluff or Chico or further south like Monterey or Santa Barbara, or inland, like Fresno?

    Sorry. I posted before I researched. Cupid's, est 1946 in Hollywood. They're in Torrance and Sherman Oaks, also. A bit out of my range. I found a bunch of links by putting in "Cupid's Hot Dogs" in the URL bar. One of the links had contact Dom Lombardi. E-mail domnikel@earthlink.net, fax 310-534-8210, phone 310-534 8100, address:2599 Airport Dr, Torrance, CA 90505. If you put cupidshotdogs.com, you get their home page which is still under construction. If they don't bottle the stuff and sell it commercially, maybe someone there can come up with a copycat recipie?

    Thanks for a fun memory from my youth. I grew up in Van Nuys Calif and moved to Minn in 1968. We used to stand in line every now and then for a Cupid's Hot Dog. My dad would take us for a special treat. icon_biggrin.gif

    I'd love the recipe.

    Hey there-I took a look around the net and didnt find it-do you think you could try fiddling with this recipe, Coney Island Hot Dog Sauce and maybe have a base to start with. Was it a smooth sauce with bite??? or tomato based??? Di icon_wink.gif

    You have probably found the recipe by now, but if not here it is. Blend a can of Nalley tamales, add a can of no bean Hormel chili, and a can of bud light. Summer them until desired thickness.

    Seriously it seems to simple to be true, but its pretty much right on the money.

    This is another very old request from 10 years ago...!!!, icon_rolleyes.gif and still the right recipe hasn't been posted. I found this similar recipe in the Internet that sounds like the one the original poster requested on Feb 14, 2003:

    CUPIDS HOT DOG CHILI
    http://www.recipelink.com/msgbrd/board_14/2010/JAN/34748.html
    From Richard Patterson - 1-22-2010
    "I was raised in North Hollywood. Was there when the ole man opened first Cupids at Lankershim & Burbank Blvd. In 1949 hot dogs were 25 cents. Coke was 5 cents. Been working over 50 years on his recipe". This is close:
    Ingredients:
    1/4 cup olive oil
    3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
    1 tbsp basil
    1/4 tbsp oregano
    1 tsp fennel
    1 pound ground beef
    hot water or beer (as needed)
    1 cup catsup
    1/2 cup mustard
    1 medium onion, finely chopped
    3 tsp granulated sugar
    2 tsp apple cider vinegar
    2 tsp chili powder
    salt (to taste)

    Saute garlic, basil, oregano and fennel in olive oil over low heat.
    Add ground beef and cook slowly until brown. Break up and put in 4-quart pan. Add hot water or beer to make a thick mix; stir until smooth. Add remaining ingredients. Cook 1 hour on low heat. Thin with additional water or beer, as needed.
