Hot Dog Chili- Southern Style

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Jakiblue

Condiment- finer than regular chili. This came from sorta watching things when I was young, and in the South, every Sunday was relative get togethers at my Maw Maws house, which was next door. Ahh, what fond laid back memories! I kept playing around with what I remembered (she didn't use a glove) and came up with this concoction.And , please, don't forget the coleslaw and onions to go on your dogs!!!

Top Review by Seasoned Cook

EXCELLENT! I added a can of petit diced tomatoes. Just can't beat chili as a condiment on a hot dog! Just goes together like peanut butter and jelly does. It is best to use lean beef. Prepared as a participant in the Southern, Cajun, Creole Sept 2009 Tag Event in the Cooking Photo Forum.
