This easy hot dog chili will bring back nostalgic memories of childhood.  This rich, beefy, chili takes about 30 minutes and is easily doubled to freeze some for later.



1 pound lean ground beef

½ cup beef broth

1 medium onion, minced

1 teaspoon minced garlic

1 8-ounce can tomato sauce

1 4-ounce can diced green chiles

½ cup ketchup

1 tablespoon yellow mustard

½ tablespoon chili powder

½ teaspoon cumin

2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

Pinch of red pepper flakes, to taste


In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook the ground beef with the beef broth, breaking it up with a spoon, until no pink remains and the meat is in small bits.  Stir in the onion and garlic. Cook, stirring into the beef until the onion is translucent.

Pour in the tomato sauce, green chiles, ketchup, mustard, chili powder, cumin, Worcestershire sauce, red pepper flakes, and beef broth.  Mix well, cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer until the chili is thick and the ingredients have cooked down – about 20 minutes.

Spoon over hot dogs and top with chopped onions, shredded cheese, and yellow mustard.
