Crockpot Hot Dog Chili


  • 1 pound ground beef use a lean cut like 90/10
  • ⅓ cup water
  • 5 ounces tomato sauce
  • ½ cup ketchup
  • 1 Tablespoon yellow mustard
  • 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon sugar
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder or minced onion


  1. In a medium skillet over medium heat combine the ground beef and water.
  2. Make sure to constantly break up the ground beef while it is cooking. You want it as fine as possible.
  3. Drain off any remaining water/grease.
  4. Add the beef to your slow cooker.
  5. Next, add all the remaining ingredients and stir together.
  6. Let cook on LOW 2 to 2-1/2 hours.
  7. Serve on hot dogs, french fries, or burgers!



Use a low fat ground beef both for flavor & to keep grease at a minimum (I like sirloin).

Serve with toppings like shredded cheese, minced onion, jalapenos, or mustard.

If you prefer to cook it stovetop, follow the same directions but leave it in a skillet on the stove over medium heat, simmering for 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally. 

Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. If the chili becomes too thick, you can thin with water or additional ketchup.
