These are some serious knife and fork dogs. The spicy chili and grilled hot dog combo is a classic that simply can’t be beat.
I NEVER order these when I’m out because chili can be unpredictable and VERY VERY fatty. You never know what the consistency is going to be like and you can never tell what cut of meat has been used. I like my chili chunky. I want to be able to see the meat, beans, and tomatoes and taste them all individually if I wanted to. I know, I know… I’m such a weirdo.
This chili is not just good on hot dogs. It is also delicious when served alone, on top of Fritos or tortilla chips, topped with sour cream and cheese, or any combination of the three. An added bonus?! This chili recipe is quick and easy and only takes 15 minutes to make!
Speedy Spicy Chili
Time: 15 minutes
1/2 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 lb. ground turkey or ground beef
1 can chili ready tomatoes
1 can chili beans
1/4 c. jalapeños
1 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. cumin
In a deep sauté pan over medium-high heat, cook onions and garlic in a little oil until they become fragrant. Add meat and cook until no longer pink. Add remaining ingredients and continue to cook, stirring often, until chili reduces and becomes thick. Yum!
Grill hot dogs, place in warmed hot dog buns, and top with chili and shredded cheese. Yum!
- My dad likes to add mustard to the top of his chili dogs.
- Jason likes to add sour cream.
- You can use regular hot dogs instead of turkey dogs.
- You can also leave the meat out of the chili and use vegetarian hot dogs.
