SOUTHERN STYLE HOT DOG SAUCE

Now, hot dogs work a bit differently here in Southwest Virginia. When you order a hot dog, it automatically comes with chili. If you want it without chili, you gotta be specific. They usually refer to a plain hot dog as a weiner dog. But if you just order a hot dog with ketchup and mustard, they are gonna throw chili on there too. There are lots of ways to make it. But for a true southern experience, add some SOUTHERN COLE SLAW on the hot dog with the chili.The Best Homemade Southern Style Hot Dog Chili recipe from The Country Cook
