Merciful God, You are great in compassion and Your tenderness for us is without measure. We ask You to give us today our daily bread, and also provide for the needs of all of Your hungry children around the world. Through Christ Your Son and Our Lord. Amen.

Hot Dog Chili Sauce

A quick post before the holiday weekend -- for your hot dog grillin' pleasure. In general, I don't consider hot dogs dinner. Lunch, yeah, but not dinner, unless they are Chili Dogs. Then they're substantial enough for dinner, and paired with a fruit or potato salad, passably nutritious. This recipe is from my mother-in-law. It's quick and easy. Plan to make some burgers another day in the week and just get an extra pound of meat for your Chili Dogs.

Hot Dog Chili Sauce

1 lb. ground beef
½ t. cumin
4 T. tomato sauce
garlic powder, to taste
3 T. chili powder
½ t. beef soup base

Brown meat in a small saucepan.
Add other ingredients.
Simmer for 20 minutes or to taste.
