Chili Cheese Dogs

Yield:
4 hot dogs
Level:
Easy
Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon prepared yellow mustard
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 4 all beef hot dogs, about 1/2 pound
  • 4 hot dog rolls
  • 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar
Directions

To make the chili: Heat a skillet over medium flame and add 2 tablespoons of olive oil. When the oil gets hazy, add the onion and cook, stirring, until they are soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the ground beef, breaking it up with the back of a spoon, and cook until nicely browned, about 10 minutes. Stir in the ketchup, chili powder, and mustard; simmer for 15 minutes until thick; season with salt and pepper.

For the hot dogs: While the chili is cooking: place a large grill pan on 2 burners over medium-high heat or preheat an outdoor gas or charcoal barbecue and get it very hot. Brush the grates with oil to keep the hot dogs from sticking. Parboil the dogs first before grilling: bring a pot of water to a boil and cook the hot dogs for about 5 minutes. Remove from the water and grill the hot dogs just long enough to give them grill marks. Brush the insides of the rolls with the remaining oil and place them face down on the grill until toasty. To serve, top each hot dog with the chili and some Cheddar cheese.

This was more like a sloppy joe than a chili dog. The ketchup taste was to obvious. I won't make this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Not the chili I expect with a hot dog. Not much "chili" flavor either. Tastes more like beef bbq No need for 1/4 c olive oil either burger made enough to cook the onions and garlic item not reviewed by moderator and published
too sweet from the ketchup you should use a can of sauce and it needs cumin to have the taste of chili item not reviewed by moderator and published
The recipe calls for a quarter cup olive oil but when you make it it only asks for 2 T. Where does the rest go? item not reviewed by moderator and published
Sorry Tyler, this was a horrible chili for hot dogs. While I can't say the taste was awful, it certainly was not chili. Someone else made a comment something like "used it for sloppy joes". Well, it was a 3-star for sloppy joes. For the life of me, I just find it hard to believe so many rated this 4 or 5 stars. I'm just glad I tried it before serving to anyone and calling it Chili Dog Sauce. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I don't cook very often but was craving a chili dog and came searching..I love Tyler's foods so I figured i'd give this a shot. I loooooved these! I did cut everything in half because I was only eating myself, and they are easy and yummmyyy!! I'm making these with my mom soon. Give them a try, and if you aren't sure you will like them, cut everything in half! Thanks Tyler! ill never buy "canned hotdog chili" again! =) item not reviewed by moderator and published
