In West Virginia, we don't put "chili" on our hot dogs, we put "sauce"on them. This is a pretty basic recipe that can be doctored to your personal taste. =^..^=
Brown ground beef & onion together, chopping meat into small pieces. Drain & return to skillet.
Add tomato sauce & chili powder. Simmer over med-low heat, stirring often, until sauce is desired consistency. Taste & add more chili powder, if needed. Stir well.
Variations: For the meat, use ground venison, veggie burger, ground turkey, etc... Chopped green pepper can be added with the onion. Some folks like a splash of tabasco or hot sauce.
Serve sauce over hot dog in a bun. In West Virginia, traditionally, hot dogs come with sauce, mustard, and (chopped raw) onions OR sauce & slaw. But make yourself happy with your own combinations!
