Chili Cheese Dogs

When I can't get my husband to eat anything else he'll always appreciate a good chili cheese dog.  I make the chili from scratch. Do not hesitate to use a can of your favorite chill without beans. This will serve four (if they don't go crazy for them)

1 8 count package hot dogs
1  8 count package hot dog buns
Fiesta shredded cheese
Home make relish

Grill the dogs for about ten minutes if you have time. If not heat on the stove in boiling water or in the oven on a warm pan for 15 minutes.

Homemade Bean Less Chili
1 lb ground meat
2 Tbs Flour
1 4 oz Can Tomato Sauce
2 Tablespoons Water
11/2 cup Chili Seasoning Mix
1 Tsp Red Chili Sauce (more if you go for spicy)
Salt & Pepper

Brown meat in large kettle.  Mix flour into meat string quickly to avoid lumps.  Pour in Tomato Sauce and water continuing to stir briskly until mixture is smooth. You might need to add more water at this point if the gravy is too thick.  Add chili seasonings, salt and pepper. Let simmer for thirty minutes while hot dogs cook.

Home Made Relish
1/2 Cup Dill Pickles (diced)
2 Jalapeno Peppers (diced)
3 Large Garlic Cloves (crushed)
1/4 Cup Diced Onion                                       

Mix all ingredients and let set in refrigerator for at least an hour before serving.

Place chili, cheese and relish on the bottom of a hot dog bun and top with hot dog. ENJOY!
