Chili Dogs

Our favorite night for Chili Dogs is a Friday night, especially in the fall.  Phillip always says that it reminds him of high school football games and the smell of chili dogs from the concession stand.  We like to cook our Oscar Meyer wieners in the microwave because it gives the wieners a roasted taste.  If Phillip is grilling hamburgers, he likes to throw a couple of wieners on the grill to roast.  He says you can't beat the taste of wieners roasted on the grill.  The hot dog Chili is Phillip's recipe that he has worked on until he got it just right.  He wanted it to taste like the chili dogs from his high school football memories. 

I like to microwave the hot dog buns for about 15 sec. in the microwave.  Next, I add mayonnaise, a wiener, mustard, a 1/2 slice of Velveeta cheese, chili, and ketschup.  Phillip would leave off the cheese and add chopped onion.  Can you smell 'em and taste 'em?  Have yourself a Friday night Chili Dog!

1 lb. ground chuck

1 - 8 oz. can Tomato Sauce
1 heaping tsp. of chili  powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper

Place ground chuck, chopped onion, salt, and pepper in a medium saucepan.  Cook on medium heat.  Use a fork to mash down on meat, so that the meat will be in small pieces.  Drain meat.  Add tomato sauce and chili powder.  Allow to simmer for 30 min.
