Rootbeer Stand Spanish Hot Dogs


  • 1-1/2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1/2 cup Our Family Garden, Unsweetened Applesauce
  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 3 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar (5%)
  • 1/4 cup onion (minced)
  • 1/4 cup red or green bell pepper (minced)
  • 1 teaspoon salt


Do not cook hamburger meat first. Mix raw hamburger with the applesauce and tomato sauce and then add all the ingredients together in a 3-4 qt non-stick pot.

Stir constantly, cooking over medium-high heat, then reduce and simmer for 30 minutes for a loose meat hot dog topping.

Serving Additions

8 to 10 medium steamed hot dogs
8 to 10 medium hot dog buns, split

Spoon over hot dogs, or delicious served on a bun by itself.


Alternate cooking- place all ingredients in a crockpot and slowcook on low 4 hours, stirring occasionally. Either cooking method can be kept warm in crockpot.
