2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1 small onion, finely chopped
1/2 lb ground beef
1 can (14 1/2 ounces) tomato sauce
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin (optional)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Prep time: 10 minutes
cooking time: 25 minutes
It makes enough to top 6 to 8 burgers or hot dogs.
Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring for 3 minutes. Add the ground beef and cook, breaking up the lumps with a wooden spoon, until the meat is no longer pink, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in tomato sauce, chili powder, cumin (if using) salt and pepper. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for another 15 minutes until thick. Spoon onto hot dogs, hamburgers or grilled chicken.

My notes: I found this recipe from cookingvillage recipes. It is very good. You can add shredded cheese like cheddar cheese to the top, so good when it melts into the chili topping. We used it on hot dogs. Also, I did not add the chili powder since we do not like spicy foods and just added a little extra cumin to give it a good flavor.
