Tailgating Red HOT Weiners

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Carrie in Indiana

I picked this recipe up tailgating with friends at one of the many Notre Dame games I've been to (thanks Adam and Alex, GO ND!!). It couldn't be easier. While waiting for the sauce to cook down, throw the football with your friends and have a few beers!!
