Hot Texas Wiener Sauce for Chili Dogs


  • 2 lbs ground beef
  • 2 8 oz cans tomato paste
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 1 1/2 tbsp chili powder
  • 3/4 tbsp paprika
  • 3/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/2 tsp celery seed
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground pepper
  • 6 oz Heinz ketchup
  • 2 tbsp spicy brown mustard
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 cup finely chopped onion and another 2 cups that do not go into the recipe.


  • The process is just as important as the ingredients, so please do not try to rush this.
  • Put all measured dry ingredients above into a small bowl and mix well, set aside.
  • Brown the ground beef while breaking it into the smallest pieces possible, drain most of the grease, leave a little.
  • Add tomato paste and water directly to the pan with the beef, medium heat, combine well.
  • Sprinkle all dry ingredients evenly into beef/tomato paste mixture while keeping a medium to low heat.
  • Add all other remaining ingredients to pan and stir/mix well. Remember, only 1 cup onion goes in.
  • Slow simmer for at least 1 hour, adding water as necessary so as not to dry out or burn.
