Several years ago, basically, when my son's were in junior high, we lived in Washington, NC aka "Little Washington".  It's a quaint small coastal town on the Pamilico Sound and also the home of the famous "Fountain Power Boats" who has a plant in nearby Chocowinity.
One of the most infamous sandwich shops is located downtown on the river and is called "Bills Hot Dogs".
All you have to do is search "YELP" or any other search engine for Bills Hot Dog Chili and you will see that "EVERYONE" raves about these dogs...and wants the recipe.
Since I have been away from the area which is over 20 years ago, from time to time I have dreamed of having a Bills Hot Dog...but don't really care for the drive from my location.
After much painstaking efforts of attempting to duplicate this weird hot dog chili which is similar to a thick spicy gravy....I finally achieved my goal.
First of all, there are no white beans chicken broth....and it's basically like I always thought it was...with a few added interesting ingredients.

    2 cups of water
    1 onion
    4 tablespoons of flour
    1/2 tsp of texas pete
    1/2 tsp of tabasco sauce
    dash of red pepper
    1/2 tsp black pepper
    1/4 tsp chili powder
    1/4 tsp white pepper
    1/4 tsp paprika
    3/4 tsp dry mustard
    1/2 tsp sugar
    1/2 tsp salt
    Cut up onion,add water,bring to a boil and add all ingredients,except flour. Cook 5 mins and add flour
