I jumped right on to my search bar here and typed it in. "Here it is!"
"Does it have beans? I want to try beans this time," he exclaimed.
So I dug a bit deeper in the paper files and found a recipe I hadn't made since my older son was younger. I just had to share it with you.
This was made last night, and it will be a keeper for sure in the upcoming years. It was one of the most amazing, rib-filling recipe you're ever going to find.
8 Hot Dog Buns
1 cup chopped yellow onion
2 cups grated Cheddar cheese
1/2 tsp. hot sauce
1 pound ground beef
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2 sweet yellow onion, chopped
1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
1 (14.5 oz) can tomato sauce
1 tablespoon chili powder
2 teaspoons garlic granules
2 teaspoons paprika
Salt and pepper to taste
1 (16 oz) pinto beans, drained and rinsed
To make chili, brown ground beef in 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a large saucepan for about 10 minutes over medium heat.Add onion and red bell pepper, stirring well. Add tomato sauce, beans, and seasonings, stirring well.
Allow mixture to bubble for about 10 minutes, then reduce heat to simmer and cook at least 30 minutes.
To make hot dogs, cook on your grill or on a grill pan until just seared on the outside.
Swipe each bun with mustard, add hot dog, top with chili as desired, followed by grated cheese, onion.
If you'd like the cheese all melty, place chili dogs on a foil-lined cookie sheet and run under a hot broiler for 2 to 3 minutes or until cheese bubbles.
