My first-ever Chili dog!

Somehow I've managed to make it into my 40s without ever having a chili dog.   I saw this recipe in the June/July 2016 Taste of Home and pinned it to try.  I made no changes to the chili itself, but I did forgot to line the insides of the roll with mustard, will have to remember that for next time.    My guys aren't into chili, and I'd considered reducing the recipe, but I'm glad I didn't.   I froze the remaining chili in single person portions.   Thank you so much to Patricia P for sharing her recipe!

(Being honest- this was my first-ever and my second-ever chili dogs-  they were so good I had two!)

  1. Chili dogs are one of my boys favorites! I can't believe you went through life without one! ;) Thank you for sharing on the Celebrate 365 Father's Day Party. I do hope you will join our new Patriotic Party that is live today.

  2. I have never made chili dogs either but I have eaten a lot of them and this recipe sounds amazing.
