Coney Island Chili Dogs

This is a Rachel Ray recipe that I knew our family would be excited about...and they were a big hit! I put my chili on my fries since I can't eat the hot dog on a bun and it was really good too :-). Sometimes it's fun to make something that seems like a treat for everyone and this fit the bill!

Ingredients:
8 hot dog buns
1 pound ground beef (I used 1/2 lb)
2 onions, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon ground cumin
One 6-ounce can tomato paste
1 tablespoon yellow mustard, plus more for topping
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons brown sugar
8 beef hot dogs in natural casings (I made sure to get good quality dogs, but they weren't in casings)

Directions:
1.Preheat the oven to 300°. Wrap the hot dog rolls in foil. Place the rolls in the oven and heat through. (I toasted ours in the toaster)
In a large skillet, cook the beef, half of the onions and the garlic over medium-high heat, breaking up the meat, until the onions are softened and the meat is cooked though, about 5 minutes. Stir in the chili powder and cumin and cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes. Stir in 1 cup water, the tomato paste, mustard, Worcestershire sauce and brown sugar. Bring to a boil, then cover, reduce the heat to medium and cook until thickened, about 20 minutes.
2.Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, cover the hot dogs with water and bring to a boil. Cook until heated through, about 8 minutes. Place the hot dogs in the rolls and top with the chili, the remaining onions and extra mustard.
