Mama’s Hot Dogs (Recipe: Skillet Hot Dog Chili)
Somewhere along the line, she came upon a recipe for homemade hot dog chili. From that day forward, she never bought a package of hot dogs without buying a pound of ground beef to make the chili. Hot dogs and chili were for ever united in our home.
- 1 medium sweet onion diced
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1/4 cup ketchup
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 1/2 cup water
- 3/4 teaspoon salt.
Add a small amount of cooking oil to a hot skillet. Drop in diced onions and cook for about 5 minutes or until the onions began to softened.
Add ground beef to skillet with onions. Cook and stir until all pink is gone from the meat. Drain if necessary.
Put ketchup and chili powder in beef mixture and stir well. Add water and salt. Stir well. Simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Serve hot on hot dogs.
