My mother made chili dogs once a week while I was growing up as it was an inexpensive and easy meal to feed a family of eight. This is total comfort food for me. I toasted the bun and used red onion and, of course, served with Fritos. Made for Pammy's cookathon.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (25 ounce) can chili (I use Hormel, with beans, but you can use whatever you like )
  • 6 hot dogs
  • 6 hot dog buns
  • 8 ounces cheddar cheese
  • 12 cup onion, diced (optional)


  1. Heat the chili and hot dogs in the same pan until hot.
  2. Put the hot dogs in a split hot dog bun, cover with chili cheese and onion.
  3. Eat!
  4. Note: You could toast the buns first, although I don't.
