The real version of this chili sauce comes to each Wienerschnitzel unit as concentrated brown goo in big 6-pound, 12-ounce cans. After adding 64 ounces of water and 15 chopped hamburger patties the stuff is transformed into the familiar thick and spicy chili sauce dolloped over hot dogs and French fries at America's largest hot dog chain. The proper proportion of spices, tomato paste, and meat is crucial; but the real challenge in hacking this recipe is finding a common grocery store equivalent for modified food starch that's used in the real chili sauce as a thickener. After a couple days in the underground lab with Starbucks lattes on intravenous drip, I came out, squinting at the bright sunshine, with a solution to the chili conundrum. This secret combination of cornstarch and Wondra flour and plenty of salt and chili powder makes a chili sauce that says nothing but "Wienerschnitzel" all over it.

I have loved this chili since the Weinersnitzel opened in Compton, CA. Forgive the spelling, I dont pronounce it correctly too! But I do know the chili ... thank you for at my 75th year, I have a chili recipe to pass to my children... What a blessing!

I have been eating chili dogs from Winnie Hut since 1970. This is a perfect duplication of the original!! Makes a ton.
