    Gotta love a good chili dog! I marked your chili recipe, so I can make it when I get settled and the weather turns chili-er (sorry, I had to!)

      Hi Emi! I hope you enjoy the chili. Anytime is good chili time for my husband :)

    Incredible. I just drooled all over my keyboard. I’ll provide that ingredient’s list on the next trip to the market and make this chilli dog as soon as possible.

    Hi Lacey,

    Found your recipe several weeks ago for the chili cheese dogs, and wanted to try it, so today I did.

    I must say it is great, and all who had them said the same, BUT: I must say that I, (i alone) like a more tart than sweet taste, and was wondering what I could add to make it a little more tart for me, can not think of what to add.

    Great recipe My Friend,

      Hi Sidney! I totally understand — I used to prefer my sauce on the tarter side as well. Just add a little more vinegar — maybe even some lemon juice — to reach your desired level of tartness. Good luck!

    OMGoodness!!! We are having a family get together this weekend and I so wanted a good chili dog…my family is from Rhode Island and they have “hot weiners” so I knew that the chili would have to be more than the bland stuff from the stores…YIPPEE I think I found it :O) Thank you so much…and I am smitten with your site – I bookmarked it! Have a blessed day

    My son wants chili cheese dogs tonight. Your recipe looks good. So you really just put meat in water? No browning of meat? Just asking before I give it a whirl. Thanks cyndie

      I know, Cyndie, it looks a little unorthodox — especially since I usually say the secret to great food is browning the meat well. But this recipe is just so good — try it out and see what you think. ;)

        Sorry it took so long to give you feedback, but FYI it was a huge success! Oh and I just saw your X-roads, good luck but keep on cookin’. Be happy. Cyndie

    Hello! I know this post is old, but I’ve just stumbled across it and was wondering if you could tell me how many servings this makes? I want to make it for quite a few people and want to make sure I have enough for everyone. It looks delicious, I can’t wait to try it!

    Great chili dog recipe! I kind of tweaked it here and there, doubled the cumin, added some chili powder, used beef broth vs water. I just wish I had some chili beans on hand. But it tastes great, not salty, and it’s a lot better than the stuff at restaurants.
    I’m looking forward to trying your other recipes as well.
