Serving: 24
Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 5 hrs
Total Time 5 hrs 10 mins

Ingredients
 

  • 1kg regular beef mince
  • 2/3 cup liquid beef stock
  • 140g can concentrated tomato paste
  • 1/3 cup of tomato sauce/ketchup
  • 1 cup tomato Passata (see notes below)
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 2 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • 2 tsp ground chilli

To Serve

  • Hot Dog buns
  • Hot Dog wieners
  • Grated tasty cheese

Instructions
 

  • Add mince and liquid stock to slow cooker
  • Using a plastic potato masher (so as not to scratch your bowl) mash the two together - this makes a nice fine mince in your final dish to serve on your hot dogs. If you don't have a plastic potato masher then do this step in another dish then add to slow cooker
  • Add remaining ingredients to your slow cooker and stir well to combine
  • Cook on low for 5hrs
  • Pour chilli through a fine strainer to remove liquid and leave you with just the chilli meat

To Serve

  • Split hot dog buns, top with warm wieners then 2-3 Tbsp of chilli over each dog
  • Sprinkle generously with grated cheese

Notes

  • While the chilli in the slow cooker had some heat to it, once drained of liquid I found it suitable for our children and only mildly chilli. If you are concerned though you could always reduce your chilli powder to 1.5tsp instead.
  • Passata is uncooked, crushed and sieved tomatoes. Usually, high quality ripe tomatoes are used for passata, resulting in a well flavoured tomato base that is generally superior to standard canned tomatoes.
  • Served enough for 24 chilli dogs - we used half of the mix for 12 dogs and froze the other half for another night.
