Author Notes: Yep ....it's a chili dog (Coney) in a bread bowl! Using a very similar chili that I used in The Coney http://www.food52.com/recipes/12333_the_coney, I thought this would be a fun way of serving... inpatskitchen

Serves 6 to 8 depending on the size of your bread bowls

  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef chuck
  • 1 cup finely diced onion
  • 3 tablespoons Ancho chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery salt
  • 2 tablespoons AP flour
  • 16 ounces tomato sauce
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 6 to 8 good quality natural casing franks
  • 6 to 8 round French boules ( mine were small - about 5 inches in diameter)
  • Ballpark (yellow) mustard for serving
  • Finely chopped onions for serving
  1. In a medium soup pot (about 4 quarts) saute the ground beef and onions until the meat loses its color. Drain and return to the stove.
  2. With the mixture over medium heat, stir in the chili powder, cumin, salt, pepper, sugar, allspice and celery salt. Add the flour and cook for about 2 minutes.
  3. Add the tomato sauce and chicken broth, bring to a boil and simmer for about 15 minutes.
  4. Turn off the heat and let cool a bit and the place 1 cup of the mixture into a blender and puree. Return the mixture to the pot.
  5. Slice your hot dogs into 1/2 inch rounds, throw them in the pot, bring up to a simmer and cook for about 10 more minutes.
  6. Cut the tops off the bread bowls and pull the bread on the inside out (save for bread crumbs). Save the tops. Place the bowls and tops on a baking sheet and warm in a 350F oven for just a few minutes.
  7. Spoon some of the chili in each bowl, drizzle with a little mustard and top with the diced onion. Use the bread tops for dipping. After you've had your fill of chili eat the chili soaked bread bowl and enjoy!!

Thanks...I keep thinking of a chili bowl bar with other toppings offered also ( cheese, sour cream, avocado,beans etc) for those who want something other than a coney.

Wonderful idea. I am still on the fence about what to serve on game day. Love this idea. I am chili challenged but your recipe seems doable for me. I could make boulangere's boule's only smaller and fill with some chili and love the chili bar idea.

Well you know chili isn't everyone's cup of tea..make sure you have the right crowd...I'm doing a pasta bar for my dad's BDay because I'll be able to please all!

When I say I am chili challenged it's my inability to properly spice. I have a very light hand when it comes to spicing and chili is very assertive. My daughter jokingly calls me the "anti spice". I have to work on that.
