    Clifford Boren's Note:

    Back during the 50's in Southern California, this was a very popular dish in small "Mom and Pop" diners. It doesn't appear on menus anymore, but it is still a solid comfort food for a chilly evening. Wash it down with ice cold beer.

    1. 1
      Spread butter on the open faces of the buns, sprinkle them with garlic powder and black pepper, then fry them on a griddle if you have one, or in a skillet, until toasty brown.
    2. 2
      Mold the meat into patties then cook them thoroughly.
    3. 3
      Heat the chili.
    4. 4
      I use a microwave.
    5. 5
      Depending on your taste,you might wish to muscle up the chili a bit with some hot sauce.
    6. 6
      Plate it up by placing the buns, face up, on the plate.
    7. 7
      Put the meat patty on the bun, smother it with a generous amount of chili, sprinkle some cheese over the chili, scatter onions and nacho slices on top of everything.
