My eight year old’s birthday was yesterday, and if you knew him, you would know his affinity for “Hot Hot Hot Dogs.” When we were planning his birthday party and asked him what he would like to eat, you can guess what he wanted. Hot dogs, most people would roll their eyes at serving hot dogs for a family event, especially in January in Wisconsin. I decided to kick it up a notch and create a bit of a hot dog bar that included a homemade chili for the dogs. It was inspired from a few different online sources. It turned out really good. Here you go:

  • 3 lb of ground beef
  • 4 onions diced
  • 6 cloves of garlic chopped
  • 10 Tbsp chili powder
  • 3 Tbsp cumin
  • 3 six ounce cans of tomato paste
  • 3 Tbsp yellow mustard
  • 3 Tbsp of Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 Tbsp of brown sugar
  • 3 cups water
  • salt and pepper to taste (this needed quite a bit of salt to round the flavor out)

Cooked the beef and onions in a large skillet until the meat was no longer pink. Drain the fat. Add the chili powder and cumin and cook for 3 minutes. Add the water, tomato paste, brown sugar, mustard and Worsty sauce and bring to a boil. Boil for 1 minute and then pour in crock pot to continue to heat. Serve over natural casing all beef dogs on a soft bakery bun. Top with shredded sharp cheddar and nuke for 30 seconds to melt the cheese.
