I saw something on foxtel about hot dogs in the USA, and I saw someone make a chili dog and it looked fantastic! So I've made Chili Dougs at home and took a couple of pics. First make a batch of chili. I made enough for about 6-8 dogs, so you can vary it from there. 1 diced onion 2 tsp crushed garlic 2 tsp chili powder 2 tsp dried chili flakes 1 tsp smoked paprika 1/2 tsp ground cumin 5 splashes of tabasco splash of olive oil fry this off for a minute or two, then add a 400gm tin red kidney beans (thoroughly rinsed) and 400gm beef mince, Once the beef has browned, add 2 diced sticks of celery and one diced red capsicum, one tin of diced tomato and 2 tblsp tomato paste. Get it to bubbling point, then cook this on low for a while (I turned the burner on and off for an hour, but 15 minutes on low would be fine, just keep stirring so it doesn't burn). Once you've made the chili, it's obviously fairly simple. Butter the buns, add a cooked sausage (I used italian pork sausages), the chili you've just made, grated cheese, american mustard and sliced spring onions. It's a pretty simple dish, and the chili is obviously versatile (nachos etc), but combining with the other stuff to make Chili Dougs is a dish you will eat way too much of!
