I made Charles one of his favorite treats today. Chili cheese dogs; I don’t know that I’d ever really made them before and there is no place around here to buy a descent one. I made a spicy jalapeno and black bean version. I served it with some fresh tomato, cottage cheese, and root vegetable chips so it wasn’t completely terrible for us. I also tried out some uncured hot dogs; nitrate and nitrite free.
Chili Cheese Dogs ~ with black beans and jalapeno
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1/4 cup onion
- 1 Tbs chili powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup pickled jalapeno slices
- 1/2 cup ketchup
- 1 Tbs Worcestershire sauce
- 1 Tbs mustard
- 1 Tbs brown sugar
- 1 can black beans ~ drained and rinsed
- hot dogs
In medium skillet begin cooking ground beef over medium heat. Add onion and cook until no pink remains; about 10 minutes. Drain and return to pan. Add chili powder, salt, pepper, and jalapeno slices. Stir together ketchup, Worcestershire, mustard, and brown sugar; add to beef. Stir in black beans and heat through; check thickness and add 1/4 cup water if desired. Cook hot dogs as desired and serve.
