Chili for Hot Dogs

Quick, Easy, and Delicious Chili for Hot Dogs

This recipe for chili is a tried and true recipe shared by my good friend, Elaine, many years ago.  She told me of her "secret ingredient," and that one change in the recipe makes all the difference in the world to the taste of the condiment!  Hope you'll enjoy as much as we do!

1 to 1.5 lb. lean ground beef
1 can tomato soup (the secret ingredient)
ketchup (1/2 cup)
chili powder to taste
garlic and onion powder, if desired
red pepper, to taste
salt, to taste

1.  Brown about a pound to a pound and a half of good quality ground beef in a pot or skillet until it is thoroughly done.

2.  Drain off the fat and grease.  I usually drain the meat in a colander and then rinse it under warm water.

3.  Put the meat back into the pot and add other ingredients.

4.  Add a little water, if needed, to thin the chili.  Reduce heat, cover, and allow to simmer, stirring often, for at least 30 - 45 minutes.
5.  Spoon on hotdogs in buns, and ENJOY!!
