"My best friends mother made this for her family as they grew up, and it has become a staple at her house. I thought it sounded a little bit weird, but tried it anyway, yummy comfort food! I have changed it to suit my tastes but the core is her recipe. I know it sounds like a crazy meal, but its good. I have heard this referred to as Native American Mac Soup."

Step 1

Add tomatoes, onion slices, water and all spices to a pot and heat on high until it boils. Reduce heat to a simmer and simmer for 10 minutes.

Step 2

Add hotdogs and wait for it to simmer again.

Step 3

Add macaroni and simmer for another 10 minutes until the pasta has cooked.

Step 4

If you let it sit for a few minutes, the starch in the sauce starts to thicken the sauce. Or you can do like I do and just start eating!

Step 5

I add a few shakes of hot sauce to bowl and it makes it even yummier. My son adds grated cheddar cheese to the top of his.
