Coney Island Chili Dog Sauce

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Foodie61

After countless searches for a good Coney Island sauce, I stumbled on this one at another cooking website. Most recipes I had tried were just too sweet, this is a good Midwest-style Coney sauce. I didn't follow the measurements to the letter - just eyeballed it; and I added a couple dashes of hot sauce to kick up the heat a bit.

This was awesome coney sauce! We added a can of kidney beans because DH loves beans in coney sauce. This went really well with the hotdogs and fritos! Thanks for a keeper!
