I’d have to say that I’m not much of a fan of hot dogs. Every once in a great while I’ll have one at a cookout, because really, who can resist a hot dog cooked over the fire? But hot dogs are not generally something I crave.
However, all bets are off when there is Hot Dog Chili Sauce in the fridge.
There is a little hot dog shop near my hometown in Northeast Ohio that serves an amazing chili dog. Unfortunately, since we’re not in the area anymore, I don’t get to go there much. But thankfully, a friend gave me this copycat recipe for Hot Dog Chili Sauce years ago.
Although I’ve never compared the “real thing” to this copycat recipe in a side-by-side comparison, this hot dog chili sauce recipe tastes like what I remember the “real thing” to be.
It is packed full of beef, rich tomato sauce, onions and garlic. Full of sweet, chili flavor.
When this is around, there’s no doubt. I crave a hot dog.
This makes a big recipe. I like to let my sauce simmer all day in the slow cooker instead of the stove. It completely fills my 6-quart slow cooker You can always half recipe, but I recommend making a full recipe. This hot dog chili sauce freezes well. Just portion it out in smaller containers, freeze, and you’re ready for game day, Friday, or whenever that chili craving hits.
Not only does this hot dog chili sauce make an average hot dog like a gourmet sandwich, but spoon it over some french fries and you’ve got chili fries that rival the best.
Another idea for this chili sauce? Eat it on top of macaroni and cheese. This makes an amazingly wonderful combination!
If you like this recipe, you’ll love our chili recipe, which uses this sauce as a base. Yep…we like this sauce that much in our family.
Go cook yourself some hot dogs, put them on a bun with this chili sauce on top, get some shredded cheddar cheese and melt it on top. Then make some fries to go with it. You won’t be disappointed!
