Recipe by The Chowdah Chicks
"There is a vast difference between the chili you cook and serve on its own and the chili that you slap on a chili dog. The texture and taste have to compliment the dog using smaller amounts so it won't explode all over your face. This chili is our perfect double-dog-dare-you chili for use on hot dogs. Yes, they are hot dogs, not franks. Franks lived in France from the third to the fifth century on the banks of the Rhine River. If you must call them something other than hot dogs, try 'weinahs,' that works for us in the north."

This Hot Dog Chili really works well. I found the other review confusing. I used slab thick cut bacon so that might have given me the edge with the bacon flavor. I also used beef bouillon packets not cubes. The cubes have a lot more salt. Maybe this was why I just didn't have the salt issue. I didn't get the bitter taste either. Can't figure that one out. Mine was great! Gone in a flash.
As the first reviewer, I feel really, REALLY bad, but we did not like this at all...The concept was great and I had high hopes, but it fell short for us. We felt it had a bitter after taste and it was very salty (I didn't even use the salt at the end). I also wish that the bacon flavor was more prominent. I halved the recipe, and it made A LOT, so keep that in mind.
Never before has so much work and expense gone into something so mediocre. My family said "next time just buy a can of chili." I agree with them.
