Chili Cheese Dogs

Yield:
4 hot dogs
Level:
Easy
Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon prepared yellow mustard
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 4 all beef hot dogs, about 1/2 pound
  • 4 hot dog rolls
  • 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar
Directions

To make the chili: Heat a skillet over medium flame and add 2 tablespoons of olive oil. When the oil gets hazy, add the onion and cook, stirring, until they are soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the ground beef, breaking it up with the back of a spoon, and cook until nicely browned, about 10 minutes. Stir in the ketchup, chili powder, and mustard; simmer for 15 minutes until thick; season with salt and pepper.

For the hot dogs: While the chili is cooking: place a large grill pan on 2 burners over medium-high heat or preheat an outdoor gas or charcoal barbecue and get it very hot. Brush the grates with oil to keep the hot dogs from sticking. Parboil the dogs first before grilling: bring a pot of water to a boil and cook the hot dogs for about 5 minutes. Remove from the water and grill the hot dogs just long enough to give them grill marks. Brush the insides of the rolls with the remaining oil and place them face down on the grill until toasty. To serve, top each hot dog with the chili and some Cheddar cheese.

Bad. I am throwing this recipe away. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was more like a sloppy joe than a chili dog. The ketchup taste was to obvious. I won't make this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Not the chili I expect with a hot dog. Not much "chili" flavor either. Tastes more like beef bbq No need for 1/4 c olive oil either burger made enough to cook the onions and garlic item not reviewed by moderator and published
too sweet from the ketchup you should use a can of sauce and it needs cumin to have the taste of chili item not reviewed by moderator and published
The recipe calls for a quarter cup olive oil but when you make it it only asks for 2 T. Where does the rest go? item not reviewed by moderator and published
Sorry Tyler, this was a horrible chili for hot dogs. While I can't say the taste was awful, it certainly was not chili. Someone else made a comment something like "used it for sloppy joes". Well, it was a 3-star for sloppy joes. For the life of me, I just find it hard to believe so many rated this 4 or 5 stars. I'm just glad I tried it before serving to anyone and calling it Chili Dog Sauce. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I don't cook very often but was craving a chili dog and came searching..I love Tyler's foods so I figured i'd give this a shot. I loooooved these! I did cut everything in half because I was only eating myself, and they are easy and yummmyyy!! I'm making these with my mom soon. Give them a try, and if you aren't sure you will like them, cut everything in half! Thanks Tyler! ill never buy "canned hotdog chili" again! =) item not reviewed by moderator and published
Tasted good. For me the ketchup flavor was a strong. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I had these for my 47th birthday - I did not tell anybody about the change in chili recipe - from mouths full of hot dog all I heard were muffled "this is the best hot dog I have ever had" item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent chili sauce. Very easy to make and my family really enjoyed it item not reviewed by moderator and published
Being from the south, I have eaten my fill of hot dogs, always with chili, and this recipe is the best yet! I wouldn't expect anything less from a boy from Greenville, SC. A little less olive oil, a little more chili powder and you can keep the cheddar. Now, you have one heck of a hot dog! I would award more stars if it was possible. Thank you Tyler! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was easy to make and very, very tasty! My family loved these!! Thanks Tyler! item not reviewed by moderator and published
We had our four young nieces over as well as three adults. This recipe was fantastic. I used the chili as sloppy joes for the kids, anf the chili for hot dogs for the adults. Worked out great. I found I used more chili powder than the recipe called for item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband loves this recipe. It is easy quick and I think it is even better as sloppy joes. It's quick easy and uses ingredients that are usually on hand, Thanks Tyler. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made the Sauce and it was FANTASTIC. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great recipe with few ingredients, easy to make, and lots and lots of flavor. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband loved this recipe. My 3 yr old and I liked it better without the hot dog, but either way it was very good. Tylers enthusism made me want to try this recipe. I don't normally like chilli dogs but this one is a keeper. Next time I will try using less oil to cut fat a litlle bit. I don't think it will be missed. I used ground venison because that is what I have access to. It is a much leaner meat but still good. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I made this chili last summer when it first aired and it was great!, my sister tried it and wanted some for her camping trip. I made it again this season and my sister wanted some again to take camping for the tortilla scoops and hot dogs. I do have to say that it was alittle too sweet for us so I added some hot sauce and alittle more chili powder than was called for in the recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very good but like others have said, it makes a better Sloppy Joe substitute than hot dog chili. item not reviewed by moderator and published
