Hot Dog Chili

It finally warmed up somewhat in the valley and that means it's grilling time. Especially when it's just a one day window of warmth so I decided to grill hot dogs and make my own chili for them.  This is waaaaaay better than any canned chili without beans.







Hot Dog Chili

1/2# extra lean ground beef
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup onions, diced
1/2 cup ketchup
3 tbsp tomato paste
1 tbsp yellow mustard
1/2 cup water
2 tbsp chili powder
1/4 tsp cumin
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Brown ground beef with onions and garlic.  Add in ketchup, tomato paste, mustard and spices.  Pour in water and allow to simmer for 5 minutes before serving.
