12 ounces Schnucks Select chorizo sausage, casings removed if necessary

1. Prepare outdoor grill for direct grilling over medium heat.

Stir in garlic, chili powder, oregano, cumin and pepper and cook 1 minute, stirring. Add tomato sauce and water; reduce heat to low and cook 6 to 8 minutes or until mixture thickens, stirring occasionally. Makes about 1-3/4 cups.

2. Meanwhile, place hot dogs on hot grill rack and cook 8 to 12 minutes or until browned on the outside and internal temperature reaches 165°F, turning frequently.

3. To serve, place hot dogs in buns; top each with scant 1/4 cup chorizo mixture.
