Chili Dogs

I have lots of leftovers in the fridge.  Sometimes wondering what on earth am I going to do with them??  I usually love leftovers lots of things are better the next day with chili being one of them.  See my earlier blog on my chili recipe... I love it... but didn't have enough for the family to have for a meal.  I didn't want to throw the remaining out but was racking my brain on finding a use for it.... then it hit me chili dogs.... which I hadn't had in absolute ages... I told my husband what I was thinking and he was like sounds good.  Well made them, my husband and son went nuts over them and so did I ..... so much so that I had them 3 days in a row.... crazy good.... enjoy
This makes 8 chili dogs

Chili Dogs

2 cups leftover chili
8 hot dogs
1 Tbls. butter
1 package of hot dog buns
1/2 onion, finely chopped
shredded mild cheddar cheese
condiments of your choice (I used mustard)

In pan heat leftover chili.  In frying pan place butter melting over medium heat, adding hotdogs.  Cook hotdogs until golden brown and stir chili heating thru.  In microwave warm buns for 30 seconds.  To assemble : Place hotdogs in buns, spoon chili over top, sprinkle with cheese then onions.  Top with mustard.  Enjoy....


  1. Sometimes you have to treat yourself to the good stuff, and chili dogs are good stuff....

  2. I know... I am going grocery shopping tomorrow and want to make more... not so good for the old diet...LOL
