    It was excellent. I loved the consistency of the beef when you boil the meat. I used beef broth to boil the meat instead of water and used an oil separator after I drained the beef to used the remaining broth as a thinner when the chili thickened. Also, added some chipotle in adobo. It was killer on smoked sausage dogs I got at Sam’s club - Great recipe! Thank you!

    Do you use the two cups of water after boiling or discard

    I needed a good recipe for an upcoming hot dog dinner for the youth at our church. Based on the summary and experience of KelBel (the creator of this recipe), I decided to try it out for myself. OH, MY GOODNESS! This hot dog chili is AMAZING!!! The only changes I made were: (1) sautéed onions in 2 teaspoons olive oil and 1 tablespoon butter until they were golden brown and soft, then added the garlic and sautéed for 30 seconds, (2) removed the onions and garlic from the pan, and placed them in a bowl, (3) I did not boil the meat in water - so I did NOT ADD THE 2 cups of water, INSTEAD I browned the meat (I used 90% beef, so added a couple of teaspoons of olive oil -(5) placed the onions, garlic, added 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon to the spices back into the pan with the browned meat, and continued as directed by KelBel’s recipe. THANK YOU, KELBEL!!! ABSOLUTELY - HOT DOG DELICIOUS!!!

    Although the cooking time was a bit long, this chili was super-simple to make and totally worth it! Tasted great on dogs and can't wait to try it on some fries!
