I originally posted this recipe, or one similar, back in 2012. I decided the pictures and the way the recipe was written was kind of Jonkey (messed up and or funky, I tend to make up my own words in life which makes it more interesting....). Here is the updated and "re-freshed" version! The only thing that will be missing for some of you, are the raw onions diced and thrown on top! (Feel free to do so from the comfort of your OWN home...I am not a raw onion kind of gal.)
4 Hot Dogs (Oscar Mayer beef is what is used in the pictures above)
1/2 c. reduced fat shredded cheddar
1 can Hormel Chili, Turkey, 98% fat free (no beans)
Frank's Hot Sauce
4 Hotdog Buns
Heat the Hormel chili on the stove-top in a medium size saucepan on medium-low heat. While that is heating, grill your hot dogs on a grill pan, or microwave your hot dogs until you hear them pop (I think they taste better after they explode). Sprinkle a small amount of cheese in the bottom of each of the hot dog buns. Place the hot dogs inside the buns, and top with a few tablespoons of the heated chili. Sprinkle a small amount of cheese on top, and then if you are making them "loaded", add hot sauce (I always use Frank's Red Hot Sauce) and yellow mustard.
(The picture from the original recipe post in 2012 is above. This recipe uses marble jack string cheese. The hot dog was sliced in half, with half of a string cheese in the middle, and the rest cubed and put on top. It also has normal Hormel Chili with no beans on top, instead of the turkey like I use now.)
