There are few things identified with a single season...fir trees and Christmas, eggs and Easter...but none, in my mind, is as connected with a season like hot dogs are with summer. From cookouts to ball games, the hot dog is the sandwich of the season, and, here on the Porch, a hot dog is not a hot dog without chili.
The best things on any table are homemade, and the same is true with hot dog chili (or hot dog sauce) here at the Porch.
1 cup ketchup or half of a 6 oz. can tomato paste
Note - if sauce gets too thick, simply thin it with water until it's the consistency you desire.
