Baked Chili Cheese Hot Dogs

Baked Chili Cheese Dogs from thecoersfamily.com

Baked Chili Cheese Hot Dogs is not exactly the dinner to serve when the Queen of England, or perhaps your in-laws, are coming over for dinner. This is a meal for after little league practice, or something to chow down on while you’re watching the big game. It’s messy. It’s sloppy. And it’s perfect for a busy weeknight.

I never serve these messy flavor bombs when we have company. I don’t want people seeing me eat these. You need to use a fork and a knife – or in my case a shovel and a drop cloth. This dinner is quick, easy – and your kids will love it.

ingredients for Baked Chili Cheese Dogs

Turn oven on to 400 degrees. In a large pan set up hot dog buns. Our family needs 10 – but they won’t quite fit in my pan. That’s okay, I just sort of layer them in there. We’re not going to be winning any beautiful food competitions with this one.

There are so many wrong ways to write the following sentence – but I’m playing it safe here, because we’re a family friendly site folks. Add hot dogs.

Pop this monstrosity into the oven and bake at 400 for about 15-20 minutes. Long enough to melt the cheese, heat the hot dogs, and get the chili nice and bubbly.
