  • 1 small onion, chopped

  • 1/3 cup green pepper, chopped

  • 2 stalks of celery, chopped

  • 3 garlic cloves, minced

  • 1 cup unsweetened pineapple juice

  • 8 Lime wedges

  • 3/4 cup ketchup

  • 1 Pound Stoysich Old Fashioned Wieners, cut into bite-sized pieces

  • Pineapple chunks or tidbits, drained, optional

  • Optional: Cooked rice or noodles, for serving


Step 1

In a medium saucepan, cook the bacon until crisp. Remove the bacon and drain it on paper towels; set aside. Drain the bacon grease, reserving 1 tablespoon of the drippings.

Step 2

Saute the onion, celery, green pepper, and garlic in the remaining bacon drippings until tender.

Add pineapple juice, ketchup, and chili powder; mix well. Bring the mixture to a low boil.

Step 3

Cut Hot Dogs into Appetizer Size Pieces. Add the hot dogs and return to a boil. Reduce heat and cover; simmer for 8-10 minutes or until the hot dogs are heated through.

Stir in the pineapple, if desired, and cook another 3-5 minutes or until the pineapple is heated through.

Mix in the reserved bacon.

Step 4

Transfer mixture to a small crockpot or chaffing dish. Offer guests a small bowl - with a lime wedge - can be enjoyed as is or dished over rice.
