  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the beef, celery, green pepper and onion and cook while chopping the meat up into small chunks with a spatula until browned. Drain off excess grease. Stir in tomato sauce, brown sugar, ketchup, vinegar, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, pepper, garlic powder, and salt. Simmer for 10 minutes.
  2. Lightly grease the grill grates of an outdoor grill. Heat the grill to medium heat. Open the hot dog’s buns and place cut-side down onto the grill. Grill for 1-2 minutes or until toasted on the bottom. Place the buns onto the warming rack of the grill or away from the heat.
  3. Place hot dogs onto the grill and cook over medium heat for 6-10 minutes or until heated through, turning them occasionally. While the hot dogs are grilling heat the nacho cheese over medium-low heat until heated through. To serve—place the hot dogs onto each bun. Top each with a ¼ cup of the sloppy joe mixture. Top with warmed nacho cheese sauce and sliced Peperoncini.
