Notes from the Test Kitchen:
What a fun, different way to eat a hot dog! The chili adds just the right texture and flavor to make this one yummy meal. It's an easy meal to throw together on a busy day or would be great at a summer cookout. Betcha, these would be a big hit at a tailgate party too. So many options!

Ingredients

1 lb
hamburger meat
1 1/2
onions
8 oz
cheddar cheese
1 Tbsp
chopped garlic
1 Tbsp
cumin
8 oz
tomato sauce
1 c
ketchup
2 Tbsp
chili powder
1 Tbsp
sugar
1 pinch
salt
1 pkg
weiners
4-6
hamburger buns
garnishes as desired (pickles, relish, etc)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
First make your chili. I cook 1 lb of hamburger meat, 1 T. chopped garlic, 1 chopped onion, 1 t. cumin in a cast iron skillet. Drain and then add 8 oz. tomato sauce, about 1/2 cup water, 2 T. chili powder, ketchup to taste (about a cup for us), 1 T. sugar and a pinch of salt. Let simmer for about an hour.
2
While chili is cooking, take a package of weiners and slice each one longways down the middle. Fry in hot oil and let them curl up. Chop some onion and grate some cheese. We like cheddar.
3
Brown hamburger buns in skillet and assemble your hot dogs. I like mine with mustard, about 3 slices of weiners (they fit perfectly curled up), chili, onions, and dill pickles, then topped with cheese. Yum Yum!!!
