I loved Foiled Hot Dogs so much that it landed in my best of 2010 good with its crispy bun. This kicks it up a notch and is a great budget meal with easy clean up. Multiply to serve a crowd.

Wow, these were great!! I doubled the recipe and cut each hot dog/bun in half before adding the chili and cheese. This allowed folks to try the hot dogs w/o committing to a whole one... worked well for my Superbowl party. I cooked these in a foil pan so I could put the whole thing directly in the chafing dish tray and that worked well. I used Wolf brand no-beans chili and the resulting hot dogs tasted great... my guests devoured them up.

The whole family enjoyed these dogs. The ones squished in the middle came out doughy don't know if it was the buns or something I did. I will use my own chili as it was too salty with canned. Thank you so much for making dogs tasty.
