Step 1

In a large pot over medium heat, brown the ground beef with onion or onion powder and garlic stirring constantly to break up all the clumps into fine pieces.

Step 2

Add the mild chili sauce, chili seasoning, water, Worcestershire and mustard. Bring to a boil, lower the heat, and simmer for 30 minutes. Season with salt.

Step 3

Meanwhile, boil the hot dogs according to package instructions (I like min grilled). Place hot dogs in buns, top with chili, cheddar cheese, and chopped white onion. Serve with French Fries.

Wonderful messy delish chili dog. Will make this again for sure. The new Walla Walla onions are in and they were perfect on the dog. Thanks for a great Saturday Night dinner.

Fantastic! I used jumbo kosher beef franks and cooked the chili a little longer, so good we thought we were eating at a Deli, thanks so much!

I had made the chili days ago ready to make the chili dogs and something came up and I had to freeze it, I got around to making them tonight I had forgotten how good these were, I haven't had them for a long time, thank you for bringing back great memories!
