Categories: Ground Beef, Hot Sandwich, Main Dish


  • Chili:
  • 1 lb ground beef (80% lean)
  • cold water
  • 1 medium onion , chopped
  • 3 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 cups water
  • Assembly:
  • hot dog , grilled
  • hot dog bun , steamed
  • plain yellow mustard
  • chopped onion


  1. Make the chili—soak ground beef in cold water for 30 minutes and drain; this ensures that the beef will remain free of lumps and cook up into the proper consistency typical of Coney- and Texas-style sauces.

  2. Place drained beef in a medium saucepan; add onion and spices, and mix well.

  3. Stir in the 2 cups water and place over medium heat.

  4. Cook the chili, stirring occasionally, for about 1 hour, or until it thickens.

  5. The chili may be frozen for up to 3 months.

  6. Assembly: place hot dogs in buns and top with mustard, chili, and onion; serve immediately.
