"My husband and I thought this was pretty good. I thought it was lacking something, but I did leave out the green chilies (I don't like spicy food), so that might be why. Next time I'll add in some of the onion to the slow cooker. Maybe some green pepper or something too. We did like this, so we'd make it again either way. It's a great way to use leftover hot dogs."

"A great easy fast recipe. I agree with 5hungrykids in that it's not much different than regular chili dogs, but I also like how it all cooked in the crockpot together. My family loved it."

"This recipe was good, though not sure that it is much different than just regular chili dogs. I had way more chili topping than I did hot dogs. Next time I will use two packages of hot dogs. Love the idea of all of it cooking in the crockpot together. Very quick and easy, which is what my family needs! Thank you for the recipe."
