This dog is a meal in and of itself. Grilled hot dogs are loaded with a spiced homemade chili, hit with a little wood-fired heat and generously topped with cheddar cheese, onions, and jalapeños.

      Heat a large Dutch oven on the stove top over medium-high heat. Cook the ground beef until browned and cooked through. Add all chili ingredients, minus the chocolate and limes, to the Dutch oven. NOTE: If a milder spice level is desired, omit jalapeños.
    • 3

      Place Dutch oven inside the grill and cook for 4 hours stirring every hour. Add more liquid as needed if it begins to look dry.
