Crock Pot Chili Cheese Dogs
This recipe for Crock Pot Chili Cheese Dogs isn’t so much a recipe as it is an idea for a way of serving a yummy Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day or backyard picnic. However you choose to top them is up to you. Sometimes I like a little cole slaw on top. Other times I want diced onions and some shredded cheese. But honestly, these are delicious, just as they are, straight outta the slow cooker on onto a bun!
Cheap and easy
This recipe is also super affordable. It really is perfect to make for a crowd. Serve it up with some chips or French fries. I am using store- bought chili to keep this recipe easy to make. However, if you want to make it extra special, you could try making up a batch of my Homemade Southern Hot Dog Chili. Also, the nacho cheese sauce has a little spicy kick to it. If you are sensitive to that, then you’ll just want to use a can of condensed cheddar cheese soup as a substitute.
Cook’s Notes: If you don’t like (or can’t find nacho cheese sauce, just use a can of condensed cheddar cheese soup. Also, if you love beans in your hot dog chili, then use the chili with beans (by all means!) 😉 I prefer Wolf Brand chili for my hot dogs. Finally, this would be enough chili for more than 8 hot dogs. I just went with 8 since that is what you get in one package. But realistically, you could add another 4 or 5 hot dogs to this recipe and have plenty.
