Coney Island Hot Dog Chili Sauce

Rated as 4.57 out of 5 Stars

Perfect but scale the water back to 1 2/3 cup. If you can make it the night before it’s even better! Thanks for the great football party recipe!

It is hard for me to provide an accurate rating for this recipe since I made a few changes out of necessity. I reduced the water to 2 cups for a thicker sauce. I had no relish but had sweet pic...
