"I haven't had an A&W chili dog for years, but from what I can remember, this tastes pretty much just like it. This is listed as one serving, but the sauce makes enough for about 10 servings (unless you use more on your dog like my family does, lol). The sauce can be frozen for future use."

We really loved these chili dogs. The chili sauce tasted a lot like the A & W in the town I grew up in. A&W was the very first fast food restaurant in our town. I followed the recipe exactly but out sauce was a little thick. Next time I think I would add a little more water.
