    3KillerBs's Note:

    I live hundreds of miles from the 2, best, hot dog chili's I know of -- from western PA's Brighton Hot Dog Shoppe chain and from a little stand in the parking lot at the Lowes in Rehoboth, DE. So here's my version of the perfect topping for those hot dogs. I think I got it Just Right. But if you want it hotter go ahead and use 2 more cans of tomatoes with green chilis instead of the regular diced tomatoes.

      This recipe makes a TON and I have it loaded up in my freezer (kinda nice to have a whole meal in there!). It is 'just right' as far as the spice goes and I could actually have used a bit more spice. Perhaps some Tabasco next time?

      Great tasting, easy recipe. Just the right amount of heat to spice up the hot dogs. We had a kitchen emergency when my roast didn't thaw in time for dinner, but I remembered seeing Susie's photo in the swap suite today. I had everything on hand except the turkey (we used it for meatballs a few nights ago) & only had to micro-defrost the ground beef. I cut the recipe in half & still had enough to vacuum pack & freeze for another night. Thanks for posting your recipe, you're right... it IS Just Right!

      This is a delicious, mild chili. Not only would it be perfect on a hot dog, but also in any non-bowl chili presentations where a milder, less assertive chili is desired. I'm thinking about a possibility of huevos rancheros, or over a pile of french fries or nacho chips, or even on a bed of crispy lettuce as a lunch salad. This was yummy! My DS appreciated that there were no beans! Made for Photo Swap. Thanks, 3KBs!
