Chipotle Chili Cheese Dogs

Oh man, this is a KEEPER for our family! Yummmmmyyy! The chipotle chili would also be good on baked potatoes, frito pie & anything else that chili likes to buddy up with. I’ll probably double this next time & freeze the extra.

Makes 8 dogs

Chili ingredients:

2 slices bacon, finely chopped
1 med white onion, finely chopped, divided (half for chili & save other half for garnish topping)
1 Tb minced jalapeno pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
1 lb ground beef
1 chipotle pepper in adobe sauce, chopped (from can) or 1 tsp gr chipotle chile powder
1 tsp smoked paprika

1/4 tsp salt
1 (8oz) can tomato sauce
1/2 cup beef broth

8 beef hot dogs, grilled
8 buns, grilled for 1 min.
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Cook bacon & half of onion in skillet over medium heat until bacon is crisp, about 5 mins. Add jalapeno & garlic to skillet & cook 1 min. Add ground beef; cooking until browned.
