Chili Dogs


When I was a kid and my parents took us to a particular Mcfast food restaurant, I often refused to eat. I must have been a resourceful kid, because I do remember them stopping at my favorite place on Earth...the one who not only served the dreaded hamburger, but they had hot dogs.

More importantly chili dogs and Mr. Mistys (like a slushie drink).

Anyway, it didn't surprise me when Jake developed a taste for chili dogs. It happened innocently enough, when one night we were going to have leftover turkey chili and didn't have enough for all three of us to have a bowl. Instead I toasted up some buns, roasted a few turkey smokies, and voila! Chili dogs!

What a great dinner idea! Why not even toast up the buns, roast up the smokies/wienies, and then set out an assortment of toppings like shredded cheese and diced red onions?

You'll find my chili recipe here. It makes enough for six chili dogs, plus some left over.
