Devil Chili Cheese Hot Dogs

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Lesley Anne

I love this recipe. The bread gets crispy/crusty and it is absolutely wonderful with the chili mixutre and cheese. So good! A lot of times, I skip the onion and use onion powder. It's just as good.

Very tasty chili dog. A little too much worchestershire for our taste, otherwise the chili was yummy. I also plan to add more cheese next time as we are big cheese lovers. Made for Fall 2011 Pick-A-Chef.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Brown ground beef with onion.
  3. Add chili powder, Worcestershire sauce, garlic and salt to taste. Add tomato sauce. Sauce will thicken as it cooks. Be careful not to let it stick or burn. (Sometimes I use 2 cans of tomato sauce.).
  4. In a shallow pan, heat water to a boil.
  5. Add hot dogs. Cook until plump.
  6. Remove from heat and score casings.
  7. Add butter or margarine to the pan and return franks and "fry" until casings are slightly crisp.
  8. On a baking sheet place hot dog buns.
  9. Add hot dogs to buns and top with the chili mixture. Sprinkle cheese across the top.
  10. Place hot dogs into the oven and bake for about 10 minutes.
