We've been eating these for years, but use hormel chili with beans. Always a fill in when forgetting to take something out for dinner. Read More

I guess I've been spoiled with eating homemade chili my whole life because I didn't really care for the canned stuff. However once on the hot dog and eaten all together with green onions and cheese the taste wasn't too bad. Probably not something I'd make again but it was nice trying something different. Read More

To answer a previous critical review: Many people don't NEED this recipe. I don't, I've been making these exactly like this for many years, came up with the idea myself c.1980 (although I do prefer white onion to green here). I usually snub preprocessed canned ingredients also, but these are delicious. There may be other people that appreciate the idea of this recipe. Springboard if you like. It is disclosed this is a sponsored recipe from Hormel. I love these dogs. Read More

I'm not usually a fan of hot dogs but have to admit these were really good! My husband and sons really liked these. It is not much of a recipe but something that is simple and easy to make. A great time saver when you want something quick and hassle free to put on the table. Read More

Great recipe for a chili cheese dog! This has been my go to my whole life. We've had them grilled boiled with onions (any variety) cheddar cheese pepper jack cheese cheese sauce ketchup mustard or mayo if the mood strikes - so many ways to change it up and its still delicious! Read More

This made for a quick weeknight meal but nothing special about it. I prefer homemade chili to canned but that's just my personal preference. Read More

It doesn't get any easier than this. For years this has been my favorite way of making chili dogs. I even prefer this over my own homemade chili for chili dogs. Read More
