Super Simple & Fantastic Chili Dogs (Or Just Chili)

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Cooker Man Dan

These are so good, and so filling. I just love them. And if you don't want the hot dog, just have the delicious chili.I made the recipe myself to my taste, if you find it to sweet just reduce the sugar a bit. Also the chili powder is not spicy as the sugar balances it out.

This was a great tasting and easy to make recipe. Added 2 cups of onions and 7 ounces of habanero pepper juice to kick up the heat. The balance of spiciness and sweetness was perfect! Definately have to suggest using Nathan's Famous hotdogs. Also garsnished with fresh tomato slices, sweet onions and mustard. Thanks for the post.
