Chili Dogs

Yum
Hot dogs are perfect summertime food. You can make a whole hot dog fix-it bar for a fun picnic party.  Just have plenty of fixings so everyone can customize their own dogs.   My son was very excited to try a chili dog for the first time.  I think I may have created a chili dog maniac.  He wanted a chili dog for dinner and breakfast the next day too.  This chili dog recipe is really easy and it will really make your hot dogs extra special.



Ingredients:
Hot dogs (your favorite kind cooked through either on stove-top or grill)
Hot dog buns 

Condiments:
Shredded cheddar cheese or mix of cheese
finely diced red onion
finely diced green chilies or jalapeno
mustard


Chili for Hot Dogs:
1lb lean ground beef  (I used 93% lean)
1 small onion finely diced
1-2 cloves garlic grated finely
red chili flakes to taste
1 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp celery seeds
1 Tbs Worcestershire sauce 
2 Tbs yellow mustard
1/2 cup ketchup
1 (8oz) can tomato sauce
salt and black pepper to taste


Directions:
 Heat 1 Tbs canola oil in pan.  Crumble ground beef well then brown beef with some salt and black pepper.  Next add minced onion and garlic.

Next add cumin, celery seed and red chili flakes and cook for a minute.  Next add ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, mustard and tomato sauce.

 Cook for 5 more minutes and taste for seasoning.  Keep warm and serve over hot dogs with your favorite condiments and toppings. Enjoy.

  7. I love making chili dogs. They always remind me of when I was a kid. My mom had a greasy spoon dinner where she would stop to buy us chili dogs when she was in a hurry and didn't have time to make dinner. The flavor of a chili dog is definitely worth the calories. Your recipe sounds perfect for such an iconic food!
