What Are Chili Cheese Dogs?
Chili Cheese Dogs are the best way to eat a hot dog, in my very humble opinion! Hot dogs are placed in a bun, smothered with chili and topped with mounds of shredded cheddar cheese. Kids love them, adults love them (especially when paired with Mirassou Pinot Noir). Chili cheese dogs are so easy and can easily be doubled or tripled when you need to feed a crowd!
How To Make Chili Cheese Dogs?
Thanks to Simpli5Meals, this recipe comes together super fast! Simpli5Meals is a great resource for busy moms, families, or people who want good food but need simple and quick recipe ideas. Simpli5Meals lets you plan your weekly meals with 5-ingredient recipes and pair each entree with the perfect wine to serve with your meal! I found this chili cheese dog recipe on Simpli5Meals; the 5 ingredients are buns, hot dogs, canned chili, cheese, and red onions. Mirassou Pinot Noir was the recommended wine and I have to say, the rich undertones in the Pinot Noir was ideal for the spiced chili. This is a fun meal to entertain with (think game day) or to serve on a busy weeknight.
I love this recipe because it is simple and the ingredients are easy to find at any store (I don’t have time to shop at different stores for hard to find ingredients). These chili dogs come together quickly which makes them a perfect fit for my busy schedule! The best part is they can be served to the family for a weeknight meal or I can double them and serve them for game day!
What To Eat With Chili Cheese Dogs?
I like to serve lighter fare with my chili cheese dogs, something like this Dill Pickle Pasta Salad, Greek Style Potato Salad or this Spinach and Pesto Orzo Salad. You could also keep it simple by serving a big fruit salad or a fresh green salad. Where I come from, you have to offer up extra cheese, oyster crackers, red beans, and hot sauce, too! No matter the sides, your friends and family will enjoy this simple meal and a glass of pinot noir!
