Whatever brand chili with meat sauce for chili dogs you enjoy, I always end up not being able to use all the chili dog sauce in those small cans.The can sits in the fridge untill I toss it. Sounds like a good idea.
Buying CANNED Chili Dog Sauce s your first mistake.
With all the Chili Dog Sauce recipes on here you should be able to make a batch, let it cool and put small portions in zip-loc freezer bags. Just pull one out when you need some. I heartly recommend tdj_tx's recipe! TDJ_TX Texas Hot - Wiener Sauce 4-5 cups water Less if you like it thicker
12 to 16 oz finely ground hotdogs (I prefer Hebrew National skinless all beef)
1/2 cup cornstarch (dissolved in a little cold water) 1/4 Cup White Vinegar 1 Tsp of Thyme
1 Tbls paprika
1 Tbls chili powder
1 Tsp sea or kosher salt
1/2 Tsp onion powder
1/4 Tsp white pepper
1/2 Tsp oregano
1/2 Tsp cinnamon
1 Tsp crushed red pepper flakes
A few grinds of fresh black pepper Bring everything to a boil, except the cornstarch.
Let simmer for 30 minutes, then slowly add the cornstarch mixture, stirring constantly. Bring back to a boil, and keep stirring.
Taste along the way, adjusting the salt or pepper as you like it.
Serve on your favorite hotdog, with brown mustard, diced onion, in a steamed hotdog bun. This sauce will be thin, it is supposed to be, it is not a "chili dog" recipe. The sauce will thicken as it cools. It freezes well. Note; Each time you reheat the sauce, it will get thicker
