Recipe by Lynn in MA
This is an easy version of the traditional hot dog topping that's served by New York City street vendors.

Great recipe and that coming from a New Yorker! Will def make again. Did not have chile powder so used a substitute for that- garlic powder, cumin, cayenne pepper and a bit of oregano- love the little hint of brown sugar and how liquid cooks down to a nice sauce!
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 large yellow onion, sliced into 1/4-inch thick rings
- 2 1⁄2 tablespoons ketchup
- 1⁄2 teaspoon light brown sugar
- 1⁄8 teaspoon chili powder
- 1 dash red hot pepper sauce (e.g. Tabasco)
- 1 pinch ground cinnamon
- 1⁄2 cup water
Directions See How It's Made
- Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions; cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are slightly browned and somewhat soft, about 10 minutes. Stir in the ketchup, brown sugar, chili powder, hot sauce and cinnamon; mix well. Add the water and bring mixture to a boil; simmer, uncovered, until onions are completely tender and the liquid is mostly evaporated, an additional 10 minutes.
