Coney Island Style HotDog Sauce

  • by

Anyone that’s ever gone to the Island knows that you just can’t find that awesome, chile-like sauce that’s on their hotdogs.  This is a pretty good attempt to make it just like all the shops on Coney Island offer.  It’s also great on hamburgers and french fries.
