Hot Dog Onions

"I love the push cart hot dogs, mainly because of the onions they serve on I mixed and matched many different ingredients until I came up with the perfect combination for this recipe! This tastes just like the kind of onions I often would get from my favorite hot dog stands!"

Stir in the water and tomato paste; simmer until liquid has reduced, about 20 minutes.
