Add remaining 3/4 cup of Franks (or more or less depending how spicy you like things--you can even add red pepper flakes to crank up the heat)

Chill in refrigerator

Serve over mixed greens, eat it on Ezekiel Bread as a sandwich, or eat it on its own!

**If you want to make this as a warm dip, you can add 3/4 c of plain greek yogurt to make it a little creamier**
