The end of summer always reminds me of the fair. As a kid I always looked forward to all the rides, games and mostly the food. Mini donuts, candy apples and Chili Cheese Dogs!
Chili cheese dogs are so easy to make at home. They are a great way to use up left over chili.
What you need,
1-2 cups of left over chili, this is my favourite recipe
1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
¼ cup finely diced onion
4 hot dogs, whichever brand you like, grilled or boiled
4 Hot dog buns, toasted. I love these homemade New England Style buns
Mustard, ketchup, relish or any other condiment you like
Place 1 hot dog on each of the warm toasted buns, top with your preferred condiments, I like mustard on mine.
Top with ¼ cup or so of the warmed up chili. Sprinkle on the cheese and a few onions.
These dogs are super messy; you are going to need some extra napkins!
They are so tasty the mess it totally worth it!
