Now you don't have to make a trip to the Windy City to enjoy a version of the signature hot dogs smothered in classic condiments. A Chicago-Style Dog or Chicago Dog is usually boiled, but we chose to steam ours—it gives the hot dog a good snap, and the steamed buns are warm and squishy in the best way possible.

Pork Green Chili Topped Hot Dogs
What’s better than a hot dog? One that’s topped with green chiles, tomatoes and pork. We recommend adding about 2 tablespoons of flour to help thicken your chili mixture.

Lefse Hot Dogs with Fennel Slaw
Molly says, "These are inspired by the street hot dogs they serve in Norway, that come wrapped in a flatbread that is similar to lefse. Lefse is a Norwegian flatbread made with riced potatoes. They sell it here in the supermarket, but if you can't find it you can substitute your favorite flour tortillas".
