July 4th Hot Dogs, Coney Sauce, Slaw and Baked Beans

What could be a more typical 4th meal. The dogs were grilled. The slaw, mentioned before is made with fresh cilantro, olive oil and lime juice rather than's a lighter version of the classic. The beans start with Campbell's canned baked beans and doctored with ketchup, mustard and maple syrup. They are baked for about an hour at 350 degrees. The coney sauce is made by browing 1/4 lb ground beef (or leave it out for a meat free sauce). Add 1/2C chopped onion, 2 cloves minced garlic, 3T chopped fresh oregano, 2T ground cumin, 1 can kidney beans. For heat we like Embasa Chipotle Peppers in Adobo sauce. They are very hot but also have a nice smokey flavor. Add about 2T to the above for a medium hot final product. Simmer over low heat for an hour. This makes enough sauce to top about 10 hog dogs.
