    Mustard, Ketchup, all kinds of things taste good on a good hotdog and yes I have seen how hot dogs are made, been through a plant, I don't care they taste great. Now the best one I have ever had though was in Salem Mass, sown by the tourist traps the little witch tours and such. Dude comes trucking down the street with his hot dog cart, I ate three of them! I have had hot dogs in Chicago as well and these dogs in Salem where the best! Now Portillos, not sure I spelled that right, were good as well but not like these.

    I don't eat aminals anymore. I found a good vegi dog that tastes every bit as good as a hotdog. It's still junk food, mind.

    I went the other way, eating keto most times. Hotdogs are a rare treat.

    What region of the US is famous for coleslaw on a dog? The Portland / Seattle music scene is crazy for Reuben dogs w/ bacon, pastrami and 3 cheeses.

    My wife adds kale to lots of recipe's where it would seem strange, i like it.
    Its much better than getting experimental with, say.......sardines

    Being from Texas,I'm not at liberty to voice my actual preference. I can say, however, that chili should NEVER have beans in it. Carroll Shelby said so, and I won't cross him even though he passed 5 years ago.

    Coleslaw on a dog, don’t know that one, but brown mustard with sauerkraut on a dog is good add peppers even better!

    With beans. That's how the wife makes it. And I don't dare go against the wife. But the stuff in the cans I feel are only good for chili dogs and stuff, not really good by itself.

    Ketchup us basically tomato frosting, it's loaded with sugar. I used to regularly gp out for breakfast with 3 friends and each time they would collectively eat more than one bottle of ketchup. Personally, I only use ketchup if what I'm eating is so dry pr bad that I need to mask it.

    Not mustard, I love mustard. Got in the habit of eating cheese with mustard in the Netherlands. I like to have a few types around. My favorite is probably dijon, preferably made with white wine vinegar. It is great for cooking as well.

    I have to doctor Canned stuff up but it is quick in a pinch. Hornet is meh edible doctored a bit with onions and Tabasco and jalapeños wolf brand spicy is actually decent and still I doctor it up. Home made my wife makes I sthin but good after I doctor it up a bit.

    But this begs another question do you like your chili soup like a thin to runny consistency or thick. I prefer thick but certainly won’t turn down a bowl of the runnier stuff.

    How about chili and eggs? Just had a big four egg scramble with jalapeños and cheese and of course chili!

    Back in the 80’s I was stationed at El Toro and we would hit Fat Freddy’s restaurant kind of a 50’s theme what great breakfast chili meals. The Baja has a bed of hash browns with beans and chili and salsa! And liter margaritas! Major Jarhead fuel! Sadly years later I took some guys there only to find the building converted to a Denny’s, sorry we’re open 24 hours.

    I'm cooking Chilli Tamarind Prawns for dinner tonight. Raw large King Prawns cooked with long green chillis, tamarind paste, lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves, lime zest and juice, fish sauce, onion, garlic, scallions, coconut milk, chopped tomatoes, chicken stock, coriander (cilantro) with steamed Basmati rice, sliced bananas and fruit chutney. I have just the right Pinot Noir to match with this.....
