Grilled Texas Chili Cheese Jalapeño Dog

Grilled Texas Chili Cheese Jalapeño Dogs are a meal on their own! Grilled hot dogs loaded with a richly spiced homemade Texas chili, hit with a little wood-fired heat and generously topped with cheddar cheese, onions, and jalapeños are sure to delight.

Chili Ingredients:

5 lb ground beef
2 tsp kosher salt
2 large onions, diced
2 cans chipotles in adobo, minced with sauce
1/2 cup chili powder
3 tbsp cumin powder
6 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
3 jalapeno peppers, minced
1 (28 oz) can diced or crushed tomatoes
4 cups chicken stock
1/4 cup flour
1 tbsp dark chili powder
1 tbsp ground cinnamon
3 tbsp kosher salt
juice of 2 limes
2 Hershey’s chocolate bars
salt and pepper to taste

Hot Dog Ingredients:

12 hot dogs
12 hot dog buns
4 cheddar cheese, shredded
1 white onion, chopped, for garnish

Preparation:

When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Set the temperature to High and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.

Heat a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Cook the ground beef until browned and cooked through.

Add all remaining chili ingredients minus the chocolate and limes to the Dutch oven with a lid on top. Put the Dutch oven into the grill for 4 hours stirring every hour.

Remove Dutch oven from grill and set the grill to High. Preheat with the lid closed, for 10 minutes. Grill the hot dogs for 8-10 minutes.

While the hot dogs are cooking, mix the juices of the 2 limes and the chocolate into the chili. Pull the hot dogs off and assemble the chili dogs with cheese and sprinkle onions on top. Enjoy!
