1 to 2 lbs ground beef ( we usually use about a pound of meat for the 3 of us)
Now cover it and simmer for 30 to 40 minutes. The time will vary depending on how much water you added. If it's too thin you will want to simmer it longer than if it's about right for topping hot dogs at this point.
After this has simmered for at least 30 minutes you can boil some hot dogs; chop up some onion and pull out some chopped pickles or chow chow and prepare to eat some yummy chili-dogs. I'll add some pictures or prepared hot-dogs later when we make some up.
