To better understand the chili dog, it is basically a generic name for a hot dog, served in a bun and topped with any type of chili (pork or beef). The chili dog is often served with other toppings such as shredded cheese, onions, and your condiment(s) of choice. I personally love barbecue sauce and mustard, but ketchup will do in a pinch.

I love chili cheese dogs! The messier and spicier, the better it is!

No forks and knives allowed. This is strictly a finger food delicacy.

Whether it’s fresh off the backyard grill or from a ballpark vendor cart, the chili dog is truly an American Classic!

Just a few tips when eating a chili dog. Don’t wear white and be prepared to eat the entire meal with your head turned sideways.

Hot Dogs from Across the USA: Discover the Hottest Hot Dog Recipes

Chili dogs are great for summertime cookouts and especially for tailgate parties. I almost believe that football was created by hot dog producers to sell more hot dogs. Just a theory! Oh, and don’t forget a tumbler full of your favorite cold beverage.

Here’s a classic chili hot dog recipe to get you started (courtesy of Jeff’s Classic Chili Dog recipe):

Classic Chili Hot Dog Recipe [click to see]
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • ⅓ cup water
  • ½ (10 ounces) can tomato sauce
  • ½ cup ketchup
  • 2 ½ teaspoons chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon white sugar
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 dash Worcestershire sauce

Step 1

Place ground beef in a large saucepan with water and mash the beef with a potato masher to break apart. Stir in tomato sauce, ketchup, chili powder, salt, black pepper, sugar, onion powder, and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to a boil and cook over medium heat until the chili has thickened slightly and the beef is fully cooked, about 20 minutes.
