Chili Dog Sauce

Chili Dog Sauce

This is my go-to hot dog chili dog sauce. I let it slow cook for a while to get good and tender. And I also make a huge batch and freeze some for later. I have to have chili sauce on my dogs.

  • Brown the ground beef and drain.
  • Add onion and garlic and cook another 5 minutes.
  • Add remaining ingredients and stir.
  • Simmer until thickened, about 20 minutes. If the sauce gets too thin add a bit of water.
  • Note: You can also cover and slow-cook this sauce for a few hours if you wish. It comes out nice and tender. Cook it less for a chili sauce with a little more bite from the beef.
  • Update: I made this great sauce again over the weekend. Our grocery store was out of premium enchilada sauce, so I used a "lesser" brand. I ended up adding a good amount of hot chile powder to the mix, but it still came out fantastic.
