There is nothing like an A&W Chili dog!

Top Review by CabinKat

This was a good chili dog recipe. I added a bit of ketchup for a twang and don't believe it ruined any of the spice flavors. I slow cooked this with grilled hotdogs in a crockpot...YUMMY! This was very close to what I remember from my days in Ohio & A&W. Thanks for posting!
