Chili Sauce for Chili Dogs

We love chili dogs and I like to make my own chili sauce to pour over them. I  buy the lower fat hot dogs and since I watch my carbs, I'll often eat them without the bun. Here's a quick sauce if you'd like to make your own.

1 lb. ground beef
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 T. ground chili powder (or more to your taste)
Salt and pepper to taste
1 (16-ounce) can tomato sauce
8 hot dogs, cooked
8 hot dog buns, toasted
Shredded cheddar cheese
Chopped green onions

Combine the ground beef, onion and garlic in a skillet and cook until beef is browned. Drain the fat from the skillet. Add the chili powder, s & p and the tomato sauce. Bring to a boil and then simmer for about 10 minutes.

Place hot dogs in buns and spoon some of the sauce over. Top with cheese and green onions.
