Chili Cheese Dogs ~ with black beans and jalapenos

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
  • pepper
  • 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
  • buns

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.

Enjoy ~ Kimberly
