- 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)

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.
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.
