I gave this recipe 3 stars. My family thought this was just ok. I made this recipe in hopes my 7 yr old newphew would like it. When I made this recipe I followed the directions except I cut the recipe in half. This was a very simple recipe. Thanks for posting! Christine (internetnut)

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 (7 1/4 ounce) boxes Kraft macaroni and cheese
  • 2 (15 ounce) cans hormel chili
  • milk
  • butter or margarine
  • 4 -6 hot dogs, Cut up


  1. Prepare Mac and Cheese as directed on box but do not add cheese packets yet (just the butter and milk).
  2. While Mac and Cheese is cooking, put the 2 cans of chili into a microwave safe bowl and heat up in microwave for 3 minutes.
  3. Add the mac and cheese (minus the cheese) into the bowl with the chili and mix.
  4. Cut up the 4-6 hotdogs (smaller or bigger, depending on what your preference is) and heat them up in the microwave for about a minute or so.
  5. Add the hotdogs to the macaroni and cheese (minus the cheese) and chili mixture.
  6. Last but definitely NOT least, add the cheese packs to the chili mac mixture in the bowl. This way the cheese covers ALL the ingredients so everything is cheesy =) .
