Southern Hot Dog Chili Sauce

1.5 lbs Ground Beef
1/8 c Ketchup
1 tsp Hot Sauce
½ Medium Onion Minced (Keep the other half as a condiment for the Hot Dogs)
1 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Black Pepper
1 tsp Onion Powder
½ tsp Worcestershire Sauce
¼ c Beer (optional)
3-4 c Water
½ tsp Paprika
Pinch Sugar
1 tbs Chili Powder
2 tbs Tomato Paste
How to make it:
Cover the ground beef with water and break up the meat completely.
Add beer (if using), diced onion and spices and start on Medium High to bring to a rapid boil.
Reduce and simmer. You can cook it down faster if needed just until most water is reduced. Stir occasionally.
When water is reduced, add tomato paste to thicken. Stir to incorporate.
Serve as a hot dog topping.
Leftover chili sauce freezes well.
