No hot dog is complete without a huge scoop of chili. Hot dog chili is a bit different than the traditional type that is eaten from a bowl with a hunk of cornbread. The consistency of this chili is entirely up to you. If you want it chunky, don't break the meat up as much. If you want it a little more 'pourable', really smash the meat up and add a bit more broth.
This is awesome on hotdogs, but is a terrific topper for hamburgers too.
What you need:
1 pound ground beef
1 cup beef broth
1 tablespoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 cup ketchup
3/4 cup unsalted tomato sauce
How to make it:
1. Cook the ground beef in a skillet until no longer pink, breaking it up into small pieces.
2. Drain the meat, and then return it to the pan. Pour in 1/3 cup of the beef broth.
3. Mix together all of the spices, and sprinkle them over the meat. Stir it all together.
4. Stir in the ketchup and tomato sauce.
5. Stir in half of the remaining broth, and bring to a boil.
6. Reduce the heat to medium, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes, adding a bit more broth if needed.
7. Add in a bit more of each seasoning if you like. I like my food REALLY seasoned, so I may use double the amount I have listed, but you can adjust it to suit your taste.
