One meal that I do enjoy as leftovers is chili. The longer the chili sits, the more the flavors meld together and the better it tastes! Another good thing about leftover chili is that it makes delicious chili dogs. I haven't always been a fan of hot dogs, but it's a meal that Mike often requests, and let's face it, they're easy to make!
Recently, I saw a clip on television about loaded hot dogs and I haven't been able to get them off my mind since then. We had some leftovers from the batch of chili that I made, so I decided that we'd have chili dogs. I drained off some of the liquid so we wouldn't have soggy buns, and topped the chili with some cheese. These chili dogs were everything I was hoping they would be!
Makes 8 chili dogs
8 hot dogs, cooked
8 hot dog buns
2 cups chili, warmed
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1. Place each hot dog in a bun.
2. Top each hot dog with approximately 1/4 cup warmed chili. (I used a slotted spoon to scoop out the chili and drain off some of the liquid before topping the hot dog.)
3. Top the chili dogs with shredded cheddar cheese.
