Cincinnati Cheese Coney
The Cincinnati Cheese Coney is a hot dog loaded with Cincinnati style chili, cheese, onions, and mustard. Of course, the best part of this recipe is the homemade Cincinnati chili. The chili gets a lot of its flavor from ingredients such as cinnamon, allspice, cloves, and cocoa powder. I used regular hot dogs for this recipe but you can use the all-beef ones as well. The hot dogs are boiled in water on the stove top. This recipe will serve about 5-6 people for the chili alone. You could even serve the chili one night and then have the Coneys another night with the leftover chili. These hot dogs are great for football season. Enjoy.

  1. Add the oil in a 4-quart (or larger) pot over medium heat. Add onions and garlic, stir and sauté for about 3 minutes or until softened. Add the beef, pork, broth, and water. Stir to break up the meat in the liquids. Cook while stirring frequently for 10 minutes. You want the meat to have a fine texture. Add cumin, chili powder, bay leaves, oregano, cinnamon, cloves, allspice, and paprika. Add cocoa powder, tabasco sauce, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, and tomato sauce. Stir well and adjust the heat to a low simmer. Maintain a low simmer and partially cover for 45 minutes. Stir frequently.
  2. To prepare the hot dogs—place a hot dog into a large saucepan. Add enough water to cover the hot dogs and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes or until heated through.
  3. Serve the hot dogs on buns and top with chili, cheddar cheese, onion, and mustard.
