Man Cave Hot Dog Chili

I couldn't decide whether to post this in the Chili forum or the Sauces forum, but this hot dog chili is specifically engineered for use on hot dogs and it's awesome! My girlfriend calls it "Divine Chili" and we never have hot dogs without it! I make this in fairly large batches and then put it in small containers to freeze so we have it on hand all the time...

Ingredients:

  • 12 oz of a beer of your choice (choices here will change the flavor of the chili)
    1 lb ground beef (I used 93/7 but 90/10 would work well too)
    1 medium onion, finely chopped
    1 1/4 cup ketchup
    1/3 cup yellow mustard
    3 teaspoons sugar
    1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
    1 tablespoon salt
    1 teaspoon garlic powder
    1 tablespoon chili powder

Directions:

Place the ground beef in a dutch oven and mash it up completely. Try to chop it up as finely as possible so no large clumps remain. Just as the ground beef is almost brown, dump in 12 ounces of beer (I used

Sierra Nevada Glissade) and bring to a slow boil. Let the ground beef boil slowly in the beer for about 15-20 minutes. Add remaining ingredients to the dutch oven and return to a slow boil, stirring regularly. Allow the chili to reduce to a consistency that you like and then simmer covered for 30-45 minutes. Allow the chili to cool and then place it in a container in the refrigerator overnight before serving (not required but a good idea.) Otherwise serve immediately or freeze for future use.

Let me know how you like this one!

Thanks John, I've made hotdog chili several times and will try this one next, even bought a couple of ice cube trays that I use to freeze individual dog size portions of the chili for those quick snacks. As the dogs grill, I nuke the chili cube and get out the cheese to shred. All I need is a baseball game and my day is complete.

We all agreed....best dogs we ever had.

This chili screams for hot dogs. Man Cave Meals R&D dept. scores a 10/10 Winner as far as I'm concerned.

Kings Hawaiian buns, yellow mustard, Nathan's dog, diced onion, MCM HD Chili and shredded cheddar is my recipe for #1 hot dogs.

Wife and son both said we need to now establish a "hot dog night" every week.

Thanks for this new advancement.

I was going to use a Negro Modelo but decided to use an ale instead.
