      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.

      Chili-cheese dogs have always been a pers fave for me. Growing up, it was a family tradition to have them every Sat for lunch & no one missed this meal. Now I live in a country where the most popular restaurant is a hot-dog stand! ... But the C-C dog is not the fave of the genre for Icelanders, so I always bring canned hot dog chili (no beans) back from our US trips to satisfy my appetite. I made 1 chg & 1 addition to your recipe. I added sweet pickle relish & subbed crisp fried onions for the chopped raw onion (an Icelandic idea I favor). Thx for the trip down memory lane & the streets of Iceland. I miss you.

      You can't go wrong with a good chili dog. I made a quick batch of our favorite chili recipe, Wendy's Chili Clone, and dinner was ready in 30 minutes. Served with a side salad, this was a cheap and easy meal after a long day at work and school. We'll remember you each time we have this good ole' comfort food, Pammy. Made and enjoyed in her honor.
