One of my kids would live on hot dogs and chips if we let him. (We don’t let him.) But when he gets to pick what’s for dinner, hot dogs is usually on the menu. In the summer, hot dogs on the grill are a fun treat. But in the fall and winter, chili dogs hit the spot.
Hot dog chili is different from a chili you would eat on its own (ideally topped with sour cream, onions, cheese and a square of cornbread). Nope. Nothing like it. Hot dog chili is not chunky, and usually doesn’t have beans. It’s really more of a condiment.
