Does anyone know a real good hot dog chili recipe? The kind without ketchup or beans or any of that weird stuff?
The best hot dog chili sauce I have had so far is from her:
I have tried both flash frozen patties and fresh ground beef 80/20 and I think the fresh ground beef is better. Also I bet the founders of Tommy's and Pink's didn't use flash frozen patties back in their day when they came up with the recipe.
Another tip I learned was that the beef is easier to crumble if it is first dipped in water in a large bowl.
I also add some extra lard to make the roux in my hot dog chili. Some people suggest that adding carrot into the chili makes a difference...but I cannot seem to tell.
