This thread is pure evil to any chili dog lover.. I’m speechless. As for that A&W Recipe, chili means exactly that, but only 2 tablespoons powder with 5lbs of ground beef, and an overdose of tomato based sauces?? Jeezzz.. Never step foot in Michigan, you may never leave (due to tasting the real deal)..
Plenty of decent recipes posted here if you search… Best of luck.
Begging the forgiveness of all you Chili purists out there, I have to admit that we used to routinely chop up hotdogs into bite size pieces and add them to our Chili at the table – and we loved it. After a brief sojourn in New Mexico a few years ago we have never made chili at home again. We have recognized the inadequacy of our efforts, and now only eat chili at restaurants where we can get something close to the Suthwest real deal.
This may be too late for your contest but we have used this recipe several times at church and scout functions. I found it somewhere on the net and it has served us well.
It’s a bulk recipe so you’ll need to adjust it as you see fit.
A & W Coney Island Sauce
2 small onions, finely chopped
5 pounds hamburger
64 ounces Hunt’s Tomato Paste
64 ounces Hunt’s Tomato Pur�e
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1/3 cup cider vinegar
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon pepper
1 tablespoon celery seed
3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon salt
Brown hamburger and onions in a very large skillet; drain.
Add remaining ingredients and simmer for 3 1/2 hours, stirring frequently as it will tend to stick.
This freezes very well.
6Star – what great recipes. I definitely going to try them. I think my grandkids will like them very much. Thanks again.
Here ae 3 versions of a "chili dog casserole", the first one using hot dog buns in the dish, the second two using tortillas (one rolled around the hot dogs and the other layered with tortillas). Maybe you could adapt them for something you could use.
Using hot dog buns:
Usually, at least at any chili contest with which I’m familiar, the idea is to make actual chili, not the sauce that people put on hotdogs. I rather imagine that for a sure loser at a chili cookoff make something for or with hotdogs.
I am going to a chili contest. I would like to make "chili dogs" but want it to be one dish.
Is there any good recipes with the hotdogs right in the chili?
