My boys love hot dogs, but they are happy to just eat them plain without even a bun! That won’t quite cut it for me. If I’m going to eat a hot dog, I want it to be fancied up a bit. The great thing about hot dogs is they are so easy to customize for everyone, so if your kids aren’t adventurous, just give them a plain dog while you enjoy these more complex meals.

Let’s start simple with these hot dogs smothered in homemade chili! Get the recipe at Lemons for Lulu.
