Chili Dogs

I made this recipe for my son's 5th birthday a few weeks ago. He is a huge hot dog lover and I am a huge chili dog lover. I figured I could make the chili for me, my husband, and my daughter. Only my husband and I ate the chili, but that's perfectly fine. I really loved this chili - it reminds me (and hubs agreed) of Skyline A LOT...and as you all may well know, we love our Skyline {Skyline Copycat, Cincinnati Chili #1, Cincinnati Chili #2}. The only thing that was really different was that it didn't have cocoa powder like Skyline does.

Oh and due to a lovely recipe {Oven Hot Dogs}, I am now a total mayo-on-hot-dogs lover! Like I needed something else to add mayonnaise to?!

What you need:
  • 4 tbsp. butter
  • 1 yellow onion, finely diced (plus some for topping)
  • 2 tbsp. chili powder 
  • 2 tbsp. paprika
  • 1/2 tsp. ground allspice
  • 1/2 tsp. curry powder
  • 1 tsp. dry mustard
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • salt
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • Hot dogs
  • Hot dog buns
  • Toppings: mustard, mayo, relish, onions, cheese, etc.
Melt butter in a large skillet with diced onion. Cook until translucent, trying not to brown the onions.

Add your spices to the onions; mix well.

Add ground beef and water, working to crumble it up as finely as possible.
Simmer for 30 to 45 minutes on medium heat, stirring occasionally.

Cook your hot dogs when chili is almost done - boil, nuke, fry, grill - choose your method!
Serve chili over hot dogs and top with your favorite toppings!
