Chili Recipes from AlansKitchen.comMakes 12 servings

Prep Time: 10 min.
Cooking Time: 2 - 3 hrs.


  •    1/2 - cup onions, chopped

  •       2 - Tablespoons butter

  •       2 - pounds ground chuck

  • 1-1/2 - teaspoons chili powder

  •       1 - teaspoon paprika

  •    1/8 - teaspoon crushed red peppers

  •    1/2 - teaspoon garlic salt

  •    1/2 - teaspoon kosher salt

  •    1/2 - teaspoon pepper


  1. In a skillet, add butter and melt.  Sauté the onions in the butter until clear.   Remove the onions and set aside.  Add the ground beef to the skillet and brown.  

  2. When the ground beef is brown, add back in the onions and cook together for 5 minutes.  You want to set the slow cooker temperature to LOW.  Add in the ground beef and onions.  Next, add the chili powder, paprika, crushed red pepper, garlic salt, kosher salt, and pepper.

  3. In a slow cooker, cover and cook the hot dog chili for 4 - 6 hours.  Stir frequently; you are looking for chili with a fine texture.  Serve over hot dogs.   (To cook on the stove, add the ingredients to the skillet and simmer cook for 2 to 3 hours.  Again, you want a fine texture.)

Alan's Kitchen Picnicking & Tailgate Tips:

For this recipe, you will want to do a day or two ahead.  Before leaving home, heat chili in microwave or in a saucepan.  Pour into a thermos to keep hot.  When the hot dogs are ready at your picnic or tailgate party, just open the thermos and pour into a paper bowl and let everyone go to town.
