Ingredients

  • ½ (16 ounce) package hot dogs, coarsely chopped

  • ½ cup cornstarch

  • 8 cups water, divided

  • ¼ cup distilled white vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon paprika

  • 1 tablespoon chili powder

  • 1 teaspoon sea salt

  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes

  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano

  • ½ teaspoon onion powder

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ¼ teaspoon white pepper

  • 1 pinch ground black pepper, or to taste

Directions

  1. Grind hot dogs into a chunky paste in a food processor and place into a large saucepan. Mix cornstarch with 1 cup water in a small bowl and set aside. Pour 7 more cups water over the hot dogs. Stir in vinegar, paprika, chili powder, sea salt, red pepper flakes, oregano, onion powder, cinnamon, white pepper, and black pepper and bring to a boil.

  2. Simmer over low heat until the sauce is slightly thickened, about 30 minutes. Gradually stir in reserved cornstarch mixture and simmer for 15 more minutes. Adjust salt and black pepper. Sauce will be thinner than chili and will thicken as it cools.

Cook's Note:

Just remember the buns need to be steamed. I do mine in the microwave for 30 seconds. Without the steamed buns it's not the same, and it's better to boil the hot dogs and not grill them.
