Texas Hots Jamestown, NY


Hot dogs (good kind- all beef if you can- I use Sahlen's)
Hamburgers (another option)
3 onions, diced (dice two at the same time- and then the third is for topping)
1 Lb ground beef
3 tsp (heaping) garlic, minced
1 beef bouillon cube
1/4 tsp pepper
3/4 tsp salt
1 can tomato soup (10.75 ounce)
1-1/2 c water
1-1/2 tsp paprika
2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/8 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 cup dry bread crumbs (plain)

1. Brown Ground beef w/ 2 diced onions, drain grease

Can be done two ways- in the slow cooker or on the stovetop- combine the 
ingredients either in a pot or in the greased slow cooker

2. Combine the rest of the ingredients from the garlic to the bread crumbs
3. Allow to cook in slow cooker on High for 2 hours or on Low for 4 hours
4. If on stovetop- allow to simmer for 1/2 hour- 1 hour- or longer, the longer 
   it cooks, the more the flavors mix together
5. If you want true Texas Hots, you should blend the entire mixture until 
   smooth, I didn't do that, I didn't feel like pulling out my food processor.
6. serve when ready
