Cowboy Chili Dogs

  • Difficulty Easy
  • Time 6 hours

Summer should definitely equal at least one day of really good Chili Dogs.  I don’t mean opening up some can of chili, I’m talking about slow cooking a big ole pot of homemade chili that’s packed with chunks of beef, onions and peppers.  Yeah, that’s what I’m talking about.  Who’s with me on this?
