    My family has been making a spicier version of this since the 50s. We call it taxes hot sauce. We put it on hot dogs, actually white coney dogs/snappy grillers, and fish snadwiches. Dh and I also put it on veggie burgers. It also works with tortillas as a quasidilla or taco. - 1/23/10

    Yes, this is an old family recipe too. I just had to format it to get the calories for it...figured I might as well share it.
