Filipino Spaghetti
This recipe needed a little improvement. For authenticity purposes you must get the red asian style hot dogs from an international market. If unavailable, use Nathans all beef hot dogs or Hebrew national all beef hot dogs. Regular American hot dogs will ruin the flavor of this dish as they are much too salty. (The all beef american hot dogs listed above are a great substitution-not only are they much less salty but they have the red color reminicent of the asian hot dogs.)Also,don't use spaghetti sauce. Use two bottles of Jufran Banana ketchup and 8-10 ounces tomato sauce. Omit the sugar. Only add the water if sauce needs thinning out.

Hearty Hot Dog Soup
I love this recipe. But I made a few modifactions; instead of cayenne I highly recommend either chipotle chili powder or a few chipotles in adobo [to taste; depending on the brand, really]. I also add 1/4 c diced bell pepper or a 4oz can green chilis, 1/2 t garlic powder AND a bit of fresh or jarred garlic; again to taste. And definetley use beef or even chicken broth boullion cubes.Disregard the salt requested in this recipe, the taste is much better with the salt from boullion.
