Chili Cheese Dogs


Most of the time I try and post food that is a little more refined...but, sometimes you just
have to post what is simple and delicious. I'm the queen of quick and easy in the Summer
months and save all serious cooking and baking for Fall. You will not be disappointed 
when you make this. Men love these and kids will keep coming back for more. 

                                                                   Chili Cheese Dogs

                                                           1 package all beef hot dogs
                                                           1 pound ground beef
                                                           1 package hot dog buns
                                                           1 small red onion, reserve some for topping
                                                           1 ( 15 ounce ) can tomato sauce
                                                           1/3 cup ketchup
                                                           1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
                                                           1/2 teaspoon onion powder
                                                           2 teaspoons chili powder
                                                           salt and pepper
                                                           2 teaspoons worcestershire sauce
                                                           cheddar cheese for topping

   1) In a large skillet cook ground beef and onion until cooked. Drain. Add tomato sauce,
   ketchup, worcestershire sauce and all spices. Cook until thickened. Make sure that your
   meat is in small pieces.
   2) Meanwhile grill or cook your hot dogs on a stove top.
   3) Grill hot dogs or eat them as is and place hot dog on bun, top with chili, cheese and
   red onion.

  9. Nothing beats a good old fashioned chili dog!! We grilled some Bratwurst on Saturday, had them with sour kraut and fresh tomato and crisp slices of bacon. SO good, and SO bad for you!!!

  11. Served with beer, right?! :)
    I'm not a fan of hot dogs...until you put chili cheese on them, then I'm in! I'm embarrassed to say that I've never made my own chili for them....always bought the stuff in the can- gross, I know! I will definitely try your recipe!

  22. What, these aren't refined? :)

    I love a good hot dog in the summer! Every time my hubby and I play golf we share a hot dog. I know my husband would love this! On a toasted bun - even better.

    I now buy the nitrite-free, uncured hot dogs - especially since I'm serving them to my grandboys.
