    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!

    I'm making this right now, and it tastes pretty awesome. :)

    I think next time I'll just go a little easier on the chilli powder/flakes. :lol:

    Onion rings would be an awesome side for this...

    I like it spicy, but 1 tsp of the chili's would probably be enough to still give it a kick :thumbup:

    That looks GOOD.

    Ill probably make something similar tomorrow. No sausage so maybe a sloppy joe type thing.

    Yum, they look good!

    I have to say though, my wife would have some kind of seizure if she saw your stove :)

    yeah, I know. It needs a good clean, but I cbf. We're moving out soon, and will do a proper detailing then. Will have a nice s/steel kitchen shortly, and will be kept very clean at all times (or so I say now :lol: )

    Hmm. My kids and wife can't handle hot chilli - just how hot is this (compared to say Nandos or oPorto chilli and the like)? Would it still taste OK without the chilli powder and flakes? I think they'd be OK with the tabasco alone ...

    kinda on the spicy side. you could always just make it without tabasco or chilli's and have a bottle of tabasco so people can decide how hot they want it? keep the smoked paprika though (if you have it), it's not spicy but adds a great flavour to it.

    Cool. It's always tough to tell how spicy these things end up when different cooking methods create different strengths :)

    Edit: It was made without the chilli and was found to be ... quite bland really, even for the non-lovers of chilli. It needs at least a little of the chilli (perhaps 1/2 the chilli powder) to liven it up a bit. Also recommend a little more garlic; and make the buns bigger and more solid (the typical buns from your Tip Top and so forth are too fragile).

    I use fresh chillis as well, adds some flavour and increases the spicyness.

    Made this last week, but made it a fair bit spicier with some fresh chillis and sauces. Awesome!

    Used 3 Thai Birdseye chilis in place of the dried + ground variety (Should have gone with 4 or 5), with Cholulla replacing Tabasco, added some garlic powder halfway through, was totally awesome. Don't know how anyone can eat 2 in a sitting, though.
