Ultimate Chili Dog
8 hot dogs
8 hot dog buns
1 1/2 lb ground beef
1 can tomato sauce, plus 1/3 cup water
1 bottle beer
1 can pinto beans
1/2 cup onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbs vegetable oil
2 tbs chili powder
1 tbs paprika
1 tbs cumin
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tbs salt
1 tsp black pepper
1 jalapeno, seeded and diced
1 onion, chopped
1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded, sharp, or cotija
In a large sauce pans, heat vegetable oil.
Add 1/2 chopped onion and cook for 2-3 min until translucent. Add garlic and jalapeno cook for one min. Remove onion, garlic, and pepper and place into a bowl.
Add ground beef, cook until well done, about 6-8 min. While beef is cooking, open and drain pinto beans. In either a food processor or with a potato masher, roughly mash beans.
This will act as the thickening agent for the chili.
Add mashed beans, onion, garlic, and remaining chili ingredients to pot. Turn heat up allow the mixture to bubble up for about 1 min. Reduce heat and simmer for 35-45 min.
Make sure to keep an eye on the chili so that it doesn’t burn. If chili is too thick, add 1/4 cup of water at a time to pot until chili takes on the right consistency. Once cooked, reduce heat to lowest setting and keep warm.
Preheat grill for medium heat.
Place hot dog onto grill and cook for 8-10 min, turning occasionally. Once cooked remove from heat, place into warmed hot dog buns, top with chili, diced onions, and cheese.
