I did the recipe for 4 hot-dogs. I used Meat-Lover's Slow Cooker Spaghetti Sauce instead of chili. Another time I'd like more spaghetti sauce in it and more cheese. Next time we'll grease the aluminium foil cause the cheese stuck to it. We cooked them on the bbq at low heat for 15 minutes. 2 were burned. So we won't do them on the bbq but I'll try in the oven. Thanks 2Bleu :) Made for PRMR tag game

2Bleu, you've done it again! Another great recipe. I made these with my husband in mind, but I really enjoyed them too. So easy to prepare as well. I cut the hot dogs in half the long way, then sliced off small peices. I used a full 15 oz. can of SPICY chili with beans, just because I didn't want to have any chili leftover. I'm glad I used the whole can...that's how I'll do it in the future as well. (Also stretches it to go a bit farther). Thanks for sharing this husband friendly, easy, tasty meal.
