Hot Dog Chili Sauce


  • 3 pounds ground beef
  • 4-6 tablespoons chili powder Mama insists on Mexene
  • 1 Tablespoon salt more or less to taste
  • 1 Tablespoon pepper more or less to taste
  • Enough water to cover your ground beef


  • Place enough water in a pot to cover your beef. Take handfuls of the beef and submerge in the water, smooshing it up with your hands. Add seasonings and stir. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and boil gently for about an hour. Ladle off grease from the top. Remove chili with a slotted spoon to put on hot dogs. Freeze leftovers for your next cookout!
