THIS RECIPE WAS ONE OF THE WORST I HAVE TRIED. THE AMOUNT OF TIME REQUIRED WAS TOTALLY WASTED. IT HAD NO TASTE WHATSOEVER!

Unlike Susannah, I found this Texas hot sauce to be very good. It's a good thing, because I made a triple batch. I froze it in several small freezer bags. Everybody in this house loves it.

I did this because I live in Texas and it sounded so weird it HAD to be good-- bread crumbs in hot dog chili? I'm game. In the end, it was OK.... But I will probably not make it again. I used more of every seasoning than called for, except the cinnamon (as everyone likes it spicy in my house), used kosher hot dogs (as Jewish weenies are the best weenies), and used spicy pork sausage instead of ground pork. Even so, was a little bland, and heavy on the tomato and cinnamon... And I don't get the bread crumbs at all. I used them, but they just came out like soggy bread in chili (Which is what they are). Maybe that's because I make my own bread crumbs? So if you're thinking this is a weird but well-known regional thing, it's not as far as I know. This isn't very hot at all, so hot sauce is a bit of a misnomer. It was OK, though-- the main reason I tried it was to make a big batch of something cheap and quick for my kids and their friends, and they (being kids) loved it.
