Chili Cheese Dogs

Growing up, I was never really a big fan of hot dogs. If I was at a picnic or BBQ, I always chose to have a hamburger, rather than hot dog. On the rare occasions I did eat one, it had to be drenched in ketchup and cut into bites, rather than eaten in a bun, weird right?? However, the day I had my first chili cheese dog, I knew, that was my favorite hot dog dish! Yum!! The chili, cheese, onion, and hot dog, all combined, make an amazing flavor!! My family had these for dinner the other night and all three of my kiddos loved it and ate everything on their plates!! With summer coming up, this would be perfect for a get together with friends/family!! This is also a great dinner to make on nights where you are pressed for time. I had made a big batch of chili a few months back and placed the leftovers in the freezer, all I had to do was thaw the chili and grill some hot dogs!! Enjoy!

    Girrlllllllllllll, you haven’t lived till you have yourself a slaw dog AND a chili slaw dog!!!

    I like my slaw dogs with mustard, any kind of mustard and load on the cole slaw!!!

    Another way I like a redhot is with a dill pickle spear tucked into the bun alongside the dog or one of those thinly sliced “stacker” pickles.

    This works well when I’m craving a Chicago dog but don’t have all the ingredients for one.
