Hot Dog Chili

Stephanie Gallagher
This hot dog chili recipe makes a great quick and easy dinner for busy weeknights. The directions here are for making this chili on the stove, but you can also make it in the Crockpot. Just dump everything in, and cook the chili on low for 4-6 hours.

Cornbread and apple pecan coleslaw make great side dishes for this hot dog chili.
