  • 8 hotdogs
  • 8 hotdog buns
  • 1 14 oz. can chili
  • 1 c. grated cheddar or pepper jack cheese or cubed Velveeta
  • 8 T. sour cream
  • 1 c. corn chips
  • tomatoes green onions, cilantro, avocado, or any other toppings you like


  • This recipe can either be made in the oven or on the grill. Preheat oven to 350 degrees or grill to medium high heat.
  • Place hotdog buns, spine down, in disposable baking pan (you have to use the lasagna size pan to fit them all, or you might have to use two smaller pans)
  • Set hotdogs in buns.(I grilled the hotdogs first but this really isnt' necessary)
  • Spread chili over hotdogs.
  • Sprinkle with cheese.
  • Cover pan with foil and bake for about 30 minutes or until hotdogs and chili are warmed through and cheese is melted.
  • Load chili dogs with toppings. I think corn chips and sour cream are a must. One of the great things about this recipe is that everyone gets to add their favorite toppings!
