    Title: Chilli Dog
    Categories: Beef, Chilli, Cheese, Chilies, Pork
    Yield: 18 Servings

    1/2 lb Bacon; in small pieces
    1 lg Onion, chopped
    2 lb Ground beef
    4 cl Chopped garlic
    16 oz Can tomato sauce
    1 c Beef broth
    2 tb Molasses or honey
    2 tb Sweet paprika
    1 tb Ground cumin
    2 tb Chilli spice
    1 ts Cayenne
    Hot dogs
    Chopped onion; garnish
    Shredded cheddar or jack
    - cheese; garnish

    The chilli recipe makes enough chilli for 16-20 hot dogs,
    which may seem like a lot, but you're just getting a
    large spoonful with each dog. So, if you have fewer
    people to cook for, just use the leftover chilli as a
    stand-alone-dish for later.

    If you're feeding more, just double the chilli recipe.
    You'll be happy you made a big batch. A note on the hot
    dogs, get the best quality hot dog you can, I/we tend to
    look for kosher dogs. The hot dogs themselves only need
    to be grilled enough to be heated; they are already
    cooked when you take them out of the package.

    Make the chilli first. Fry the bacon over medium heat
    until it begins to get crispy, then add the onions and
    fry over high heat, stirring often, until they begin to

    Add in the ground beef and stir in well. Cook this,
    still over high heat and stirring occasionally, until
    the beef is no longer pink. This will take a few minutes.
    When the beef is about halfway cooked, toss in the garlic
    and mix well.

    Once the beef is well browned, add the tomato sauce,
    molasses and beef broth. Add all the spices except the
    cayenne and stir well. Bring to a simmer and taste. Add
    salt or more cayenne if it needs it. You can of course
    add much more cayenne or chilli powder if you like things
    really zippy, but taste first and then add more if you

    Let the chilli cook on a gentle simmer for at least 30
    minutes before you start grilling the hot dogs. You can
    cook it several hours if you want to, adding a little
    more beef or chicken broth here and there if the chilli
    gets too dry.

    Grill your hot dogs over medium heat until they get a
    light char/grill marks. Grill the hot dog buns briefly
    if you want - no more than a minute, as they will burn
    fast. You can also paint the buns with vegetable oil or
    butter before grilling if you'd like.

    Dog goes in bun, chilli goes on top, sprinkle on chopped
    onion and shredded cheese, and have at it!
