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.
Love me an occasional chili cheese dog! Sometimes I make a pan full at a time, in the oven! Hot, toasty, delicious! Gotta have some yellow mustard on it too! The hot dogs and chili still need to be warmed first though.
Love my chili dogs made this way. I did toast the buns and added mustard and a little relish. I also fried the split hot dogs. I used my own Chili Dave's Chili that I had in the freezer. Made in memory of Pammy.
5 stars for an easy and tasty treat. I used the Hormel without beans, too. Yummy, easy and inexpensive dinner. Made in the memory of Pammyowl.
Yep, this is the way I have made chili-cheese dogs for years! Makes a quick and inexpensive go to meal. The only thing I do different is add in some mustard. Made in memory of pammyowl.
So yummy! I used gluten free chili beans and a gluten free bun, and a kind of sheep's cheese which is similar to cheddar. Soo good. Makes me remember our talk about street and fair food :)<br/>Thanks for the fond memories, dear friend.<br/>Made for the Cookathon in memory of pammyowl November 2013
I halved the recipe and added the chili powder to taste rather than measuring. By the end of 2 hours +/- this was very good. Almost tasted like sloppy joes, in fact I may use it as such in the future. Thanks for posting. Next time I'll follow the directions better and I'll update my review when I do.UPDATE 11/16/13 I use halfsmok to day and it was great.<br/>Thank You!.. Pam..... Grpa
Wow! Does this bring back memories....but not of college but of high school. Things were a bit "relaxed" at my school and my girlfriends and I went out every day for lunch. Chili-Cheese dogs were a favorite back then. Just wish I could still eat 3 at one sitting and still be skinny...LOL. Delicious indulgence. Made in memory of Pammyowl. We will miss you here at food.com.
