They say that necessity is the mother of invention. I did a lot of inventive cooking when I was a single mom of 3 hungry boys. Cheap and filling were top on the list, followed will eat it! I noticed other chili dog casseroles posted but they all call for hot dog buns. If you have a bun, make a hotdog! if you don't..make a casserole. hahaha

Clever and fun! Really tastes just like a chili dog! I made this as written and mixed a little ketchup in it too. Gives the adults heartburn just like a real chili dog too! ;) Sauerkraut would be great in this! Thanx for sharing this fun recipe.

This was ok, but I would have to make a few changes in order to make it again. First, bake at a maximum of 30 minutes because baking for 30 then putting the cheese on and baking for another 10 burnt the bottom and top of the casserole. Second, I would suggest another can of chili because one for me just wasn't enough it seemed very dry.. besides that it was pretty good
