Carolina Style: Hot Dog Chili & Cole Slaw

I've been obsessed with hot dogs lately. Those and cupcakes, but that's another post for another time.

While my creation is no Kernel Kustard remake or the sliced goodness from Skippy's, I've got some good things going on in my tiny Ardmore kitchen.

Nothing beats store-bought french fries slathered with shredded cheddar & homemade chili.

Hot Dog Chili

1 lb 93% lean ground beef
1 medium onion, finely diced
2 Tbsp Chili powder
1/2 cup ketchup
2 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
1 cup low-sodium beef stock

Add the onion & beef to a medium skillet or saucepan. Brown ground beef and cook until onions are translucentt. Add beef stock and the remaining ingredients. Cook and stir until reduced by 1/3 and thick.

Cole Slaw

"I don't know who Cole is, but I sure do like his slaw."

[Col, of course, is from the Irish word for cabbage.]

4 cups shredded cabbage (red & green)
2 carrot, shredded
2/3 cup mayonnaise
2 Tbsp white vinegar
1/2 tsp Dixie Crystals Extra Fine Granulated Sugar, or to taste
1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste

Preparation: Toss cabbage in a large bowl with the carrots. In a bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients. Pour the mixture over the cabbage and carrots and toss to coat thoroughly. Refrigerate until serving time.
