Tantalizingly Tangy Chili-Cheese Dogs


Did you know July is National Hot Dog Month?

I guess it makes sense since this is the month when
Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest takes place.  I think this year, fifty-nine hot dogs were eaten in 10 minutes and then an overtime round was required because of a tie.  Ack!  Fifty-nine dogs plus the tie-breaker round...no thanks!

We don't have hot dogs around here very often, but when we do, we like them slathered with chili and cheese.  And not just any chili, it has to be sweet and super tangy.  I love chili with cumin and cayenne but not on a hot dog. I prefer something that really forces my taste buds to stand up and salute.  This is why I came up with Noble Pig's Tantalizingly Tangy Chili-Cheese Dogs.  Hold me.

These chili-dogs have an amazing burst of flavor like you have never tasted before.  The tang gives you this awesome puckering sensation in your mouth but in a very good way.  It's not overpowering, it's just right.

But before we get to making them, there has been a lot of information written about Hot Dog Etiquette.  Didn't think it existed did you?  I feel it's important we peruse over some hot dog dogma to see if we agree or disagree with what the so-called hot dog experts are saying is the proper way to enjoy a wiener.

HOT DOG ETIQUETTE 101

Dress the dog, not the bun.  Put the dog into the bun, then add toppings.

I always add the dog, then condiments, then toppings...always.  Wow, so far I'm a hot dog eating robot.

Apply condiments in this order: wet (mustard and chili), chunky (relish and onions), cheese, then spices.

I guess I agree with this hierarchy, but spices?  What spices?

Choose sesame seed, poppy seed or plain-white buns over too-fancy sun-dried tomato or basil buns.

Yeah, basil buns? No, not for me....no.  This I agree with.

Use paper plates and paper napkins when serving hot dogs.

Unless I'm serving 100 people, we will be eating off of real dishes, thank you.

Never, never, never use a fork to eat a hot dog.  Never.

Ummm, these people have never had me serve them a chili-cheese dog.  It's un-pick-upable.  (I think I just made that word up.)

Eat dogs in five bites or fewer.  For foot-longs, it is acceptable to take seven bites.

Not to be the bearer of bad news but hot dogs are one of the foods people choke on the most!  It doesn't dissolve.  Once stuck it's stuck.  It's the one food I will not leave my kids alone to eat.  The whole time I yell remind them to take small bites.

Ketchup on hot dogs is for kids.

This person is a total whack-job.  Ketchup is my third love after mayonnaise and butter.

Never take wine to a wiener roast.

Ha! I think we know I completely disagree with this one!

So there you have it, agree or disagree with any of them?

Now let's get these dogs on the table, shall we?


Here is what you'll need:  Ground beef, hot dogs, buns, kidney beans, extra sharp cheddar cheese, Onion powder, chili sauce, yellow mustard, chili seasoning, fresh lemon juice, white onion, buffalo wing sauce, water and Worcestershire sauce.


In a skillet over medium heat, brown 1 pound of extra-lean ground beef.


Once the meat is browned add 1 bottle chili sauce, 8 ounces kidney beans, 1 packet chili seasoning, 1/2 cup water, 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce, 2 Tablespoons yellow mustard, 2 Tablespoons buffalo wing sauce, 1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice and 1 teaspoon onion powder.


Incorporate all the ingredients into the meat and bring to a boil. Turn down the heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes.

Cook hot dogs according to package directions or throw on the grill.


Place cooked hot dogs in the buns and top with chili, onion and cheese.


Build them up really high and serve with a fork and knife.


Don't forget to serve them on real dishes.  Everyone will think you are so classy.


Honestly, I can't stop looking at these pictures.

    I think the rule author has a screw or two loose. I’ll admit I don’t put catsup on hot-dogs, or anything, but that is because I don’t like catsup. I did try a catsup at a resturant that they had made and it was good. So I’ll be making it again this fall.

    The recipes here and on similar blogs are not the reason for obesity. Contrary, the people who use these tend to avoid fast food. A hot dog may be fast food, but when you made it yourself, and I do, you know what is in it.

  12. So, what wine would you recommend with these dogs?

    That chili topping does sound good. I bet the hot wing sauce really adds some kick. I think I’ll have to try it. Ooh, I wonder what a red, hot, and bleu dog would be like. Is that just wrong?

    As for the rules, I agreed with most of your comments about them. Ketchup (or catsup) is often overused, but it just belongs on a hot dog. I don’t put it on a chili dog, though.

    Are you picky about what kind of dogs you buy? Those look like pretty good quality. I don’t like the cheap-o squishy dogs. They cause an immediate gag reflex. I do like the Sam’s beef franks that come 80 to a box, and they are a good price. I also like some of the turkey dogs, Ball Park, and Hebrew National, but HN is a bit pricey for a dog.

    Okay – note to self – DON’T read Noble Pig’s blog when I am hungry!

    That hot dog looks fabulous! I like hot dogs once in a while almost burnt on the grill. There is something about that crispy skin they get that I really like. However, I might change my mind about that for your delectable looking dogs!

    Holy shnikees! I think hot dogs for breakfast is a stellar idea! As far as the ‘rules’ are concerned, I think ketchup is okay of you’re having mustard or relish, although ketchup AND relish seems mighty sweet. I love ketchup and mustard though, they balance each other so well.

    With regards to the cheese being on top? Well, I’m a double cheeser. A little UNDER the chili so you get a melty cheesy layer then more on top, for an instant hit of cheese upon biting!

    I also have to argue with the wine aspect. A yummy fizzy lambrusco would be great with the chili dog. It gives the same palate cleansing effect of a soda. Just stay away from Riunite. Especially on ice…

    i went to an atlanta braves game last night and my cousin’s girlfriend ordered a hot dog. can i tell you, for $7 that thing needed to have been made of some salmon lox and homemade ketchup and mustard, at least. it wasn’t even attractive.

    The one and only chili-cheese dog I’ve ever eaten – and let me tell you I adored/loved/purred over every single bite – I ate when I was 7 1/2 months pregnant. Let’s just leave it that my suffering was immediate, immense and horrifying. Not the smartest thing I’ve ever done.

    Maybe someday I’ll get over the memory…(sigh).

    It really does look delicious. And anything in moderation (well, maybe not crack-cocain) is perfectly ok!

    The mountain hotdog isn’t complete without slaw–that’s right, cole slaw.

    I remember my first mountain hot dog. I was at a farm auction and ordered a hot dog from the local church group that was handling refreshments. I was astounded to be handed a bun with a hot dog covered in chili and slaw. When I tasted it, I fell in love. I can’t imagine eating them any other way now.

    Always slice my dogs partially lengthwise and partially slice into about every inch crosswise, which allows for better grilling (a.k.a. burning LOL) IMHO and also allows the toppings to get right into the center of the dog. No beans in my chili for dogs (otherwise, yes). I put enough onions in the chili so I don’t additional raw ones, but I do love the cheese on top. (DH can’t even eat a non-chili dog without cheese.) This is camping season for us so we grill dogs usually on Sunday afternoon before we head home. Today I just wasn’t in the moood for a dog, but perhaps if I’d read your post beforehand I would have been in the mood for some chili dogs! Maybe next Sunday while camping … Thanks, Cathy!

    I believe in grilling hot dogs in the summer or eating them at sporting events. I do not believe in keeping them around and boiling or microwaving them–yech. I only put ketchup on mine–so sue me, I found perfection and never messed with it. :) I eat them in as small of bites as possible to keep myself from eating a second–and yeah the person who wrote the rules did not have small kids.

    Your hot dog is gorgeous and might lure me away from my ketchup only stance. :)

  55. I do everything wrong. I like to put my cheese on the chili first so it melts and I have been known to squeeze mustard on the bun as opposed to the dog itself as not to have a huge bite of mustard.

And, when I saw your hotdog, I promise myself that I will make this tomorrow.

    OMG. I’ve been craving a good, messy chili cheese hot dog, and this chili recipe was perfection. Admittedly I omitted the buffalo wing sauce, but it was still delicious and exactly what I was hoping it would be. :-D
